Phlox seating and tables by Rainlight for Okamura

Dezeen Showroom: the delicate shape of petals informed the Phlox collection of seating and tables, designed by London studio Rainlight for Japanese office furniture brand Okamura to bring a sense of softness to the workplace.

The Phlox collection is named after the eponymous night-blooming flower and includes a conference and lounge chair, a high stool and five different table shapes, distinguished by their gently rounded silhouettes.

While the seating designs offer varying degrees of back support, all are defined by their undulating seat, which swoops up to form a backrest and two curving armrests.

“Select one of three seat heights to set the tone for collaboration,” Okamura said. “Conference chairs offer mid- or high-back support with intuitive adjustments.”

“Settle into deep discussion in Phlox lounge chairs or gather spontaneously in high stools that connect the team with ease.”

The matching Phlox tables are available in a variety of different sizes, heights and shapes ranging from round, square and rectangular to gently curved trapezoid and pentagon shapes with tapered knife-edge details.

The tops can be finished in veneer, laminate or plant-based linoleum, while the wooden legs are available in four different coloured lacquers.

The seating is upholstered in a recycled PET yarn made using salvaged fishing nets from Japan’s seas.
