Prisma by Derlot Editions was developed in response to the increasing need for adaptable furniture in contemporary workplace and hospitality environments. Designed to form an array of combinations suitable for the most diverse environments, the range consists of various armchairs, lounges, ottomans, side tables and a workstation. The complete collection of elements and their adaptable combinations can lead to striking outcomes; modular pieces share the same footprint and can be rearranged endlessly to suit virtually any space or activity. Prisma was awarded a special mention at the prestigious German Design Awards 2015.

  • Environments particularly suited to Prisma include retail spaces, restaurants, lobbies, lounge and waiting areas, the educational field or residential projects. Prisma's compact size makes the system truly flexible, able to be used as single units in small spaces or as large configurations in open plan environments. The armchairs and lounges include extended backrest heights creating screens for privacy and acoustic control; adapting colour, backrest height and shape further enhances the range. When paired with workstations the upholstered units can be used to create flexible settings with the ability to grow and adapt as required.

  • Upholstered unit panels can be individually specified in a wide range of commercial or custom fabric and leather. American oak veneer side tables and solid oak workstation surface provide a contrast in materiality while still maintaining complementary shapes within the Prisma collection. Manufacturing challenges included achieving crisp edges, which complement the trapezoid footprint while maintaining adequate levels of comfort and durability for commercial environments.

  • Prisma is available locally in Australia and in Singapore through our sole distributor Stylecraft. The range comes with 10 year structural warranty and also conforms to the Global GreenTag Scheme Standard.
