Lapse is a new modular seating system created by Spanish designer Carlos Tiscar for Sandler Seating.

Ideal for lounge and waiting areas of commercial and corporate environments, Lapse has upholstered seats, backrests, lateral or intermediate arms, and tables that can all be combined to produce original configurations. The rounded base of the backrests allows for components to be joined, whilst their flat and wide surface provides additional arm support or space for small objects.

Lapse also incorporates technology with optional USB and wireless charging devices or double outlet extensions that can be fitted into any of the units. USB charging devices can also be added to backrests. Upholstered components can be customized in a variety of graded-in fabrics, leathers or COM, complementing solid oak or epoxy painted legs.

The legs of Lapse are connected discretely to the unit via steel inserts, creating a lightweight yet sturdy support for the seats. Tables are available in lacquered wood or oak veneer, with extra dimensions offered to create magazine rack features and supplementary workspace.
