Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, a United States manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for agile learning and business environments, has unveiled a new MOTIV™ High Back Sofa. The unique sofa, which is currently available for order, was created to provide a private, comfortable space with optional power accessibility to charge laptops, tablets and other mobile devices.

The Bretford® MOTIV™ High Back Sofa is engineered for unrivaled comfort, privacy and power support in any lounge environment. It’s the only high back sofa available with a power module that includes an AC outlet as well as USB charging. The newest addition to the popular line of Bretford® MOTIV™ soft seating, it was designed for use in casual learning environments, such as higher education libraries, lounges and cafés, but is also perfect for common areas of K-12 schools corporate offices and public buildings.

“Open lounge environments, while warm and inviting, can generate a lot of noise that can be distracting if a student or professional is trying to work,” explained Dan Berger, product management team lead for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.® “The high walls and back of the new MOTIV™ sofa provide both privacy and sound obstruction. When you add the optional AC and USB power, it becomes an excellent workspace or simply a place to rest while charging a laptop or mobile device.”

All MOTIV™ soft seating products, which include modular and freestanding sofas, chairs and benches, can be upholstered in a wide variety of fabrics and leathers and are available with optional power. When combined with Bretford’s® occasional tables, the MOTIV™ line transforms casual spaces into informal learning environments.
