Who are you?
I am Eleven, OFS’ latest furniture platform for open, private and collaborative spaces; designed in Switzerland, ready for the world.

What are you made of?
Aluminum, intelligence and inspiration; more strength and less structure. I am comprised of just one leg and one frame rail, which is how I got my name—1 and 1: Eleven.

What one word best describes you?
Seamless.

What are your biggest turn-ons?
Less of everything. The strong, silent type.

Turn-offs?
The beefy, boisterous and over-designed. Wires and lids. Stuff.

How do you define good design?
When looking at today’s most desirable products in any product category, you see incredible intelligence and capability delivered through a beautiful, seamless interface. This is exactly what a workspace should be doing for a company and what products should do in a space. Good space design means work, life and productivity go uninterrupted. Good products for that space mean that design and architecture exist uninterrupted.

If you were stranded on an island and could pick three things, what would they be?
Preferring ideas to “things,” I would want to be with a designer, a philosopher and a sushi chef.

How do you lessen your environmental impact?
Dematerialization. I am incredibly light and lean. My frame for an 18-foot table weighs just 102 pounds, and I span 10 feet unsupported.

What do you see when you look in the mirror?
I see the history of my creator, Daniel Korb. Thirty years of furniture systems design experience and more than 25 years as a practicing Swiss architect has led him to me.

In what type of interior environment do you make the best impact?
One where I don’t stand out, but instead harmonize. When you walk into that space, you should admire the space in its entirety, not just the furniture.

Describe the secret to your success.
Design for the future.
