The Functional Fusion of Prostoria

By |

Never a brand to shy away from an adventurous flourish, Prostoria fuses function with a signature twist.

Pushing the boundaries of design, while creating highly functional and covetable pieces, Croatian-based brand Prostoria continues to collaborate with designers and design collectives doing things a little differently.

Founded in 2010, Prostoria has been built on the tenet of innovation – always looking for unique ways to design products that catch the eye but more importantly hit the mark in terms of practicality.

With an unflinchingly courageous approach, Prostoria appoints designers and design collectives like Numen/ForUse, Grupa, Sanja Knezovic and Redesign – under the helm of its founder Tomislav Knevoz.

Some of the most iconic pieces to date include the Polygon and the Up-Lift Sofa Bed, both instantly recognisable with their bold geometric forms and versatility in application.

Match Lounge

The Match Lounge is the latest addition to the Prostoria fold. Modular in its design, it can be adapted to suit any given space, with an extensive range of configurations based on a single armchair through to a three-seat lounge. Designed by Sanja Knezovic, the Match is defined by its clean lines and elegant simplicity.

Up-Lift Sofa Bed

Not to be outdone, the Up-Lift Sofa Bed, designed by Redesign is an instantly recognisable piece in the Prostoria range. A lounge with an integrated sofa bed, the Up-Lift is highly functional and distinctive, breaking the mould for what is usually expected of sofa beds.

A simple flip of the backrest turns it from a curvaceous chair into a horizontal bed – no fumbling and creaky mechanics on this highly resolved piece.

Up-Lift is available as a single armchair, 1.5 and two-seater lounge, enabling a single, queen single or double bed module.

Umomoku Outdoor Collection

Bring a sense of solidity and groundedness to your outdoor setting with the Umomoku collection, designed by 3LHD. Available in an armchair, lounge, sun lounge and coffee table, the solid timber framing of the range is balanced by plush cushions.

Exuding a graphic quality, the frames are angular with square-cut forms and strong lines. A collection of outdoor fabrics can be used for the cushions, while timber species oiled for weather exposure make it suitable for outdoor use.


Monk Collection

Giving a nod to retro forms, but designed in a thoroughly modern way, the Monk Collection by Grupa uses bent plywood to create a floating effect from the seat to the backrest.

Available in a range of configurations, colourways, leg options and finishes, the Monk range brings versatility and style to any space.

Polygon Collection

An undeniable star of the Prostoria brand, the Polygon Collection, designed by Numen/ForUse, is defined by its geometric form and shifting details.

Triangular legs made in powdercoat steel create an orthogonal side view, which tessellates together like a series of hexagons and complex polygons.

Available in a multitude of options – textiles, armrests, finishes and powdercoat colours – it’s a chair that stands out.

Polygon armchair is also available for outdoor usage in a choice of outdoor house fabrics and three solid timber armrest options. For external use, the mild steel frame is finished to a choice from ten powdercoat colours. A Polygon table is also available for indoor or outdoor usage, providing the perfect companion to the armchair.
