Before we were influenced by Mies van der Rohe or Frank Lloyd Wright, earlier we’d seen the visual delights of Ronchamp, Pompidou Center and the Bauhaus school in Weimar, we were driven with a larger force of design inspiration. More primal and immediate than any of the examples, it was. Ignored and unrepresented for too long in the industry, respect is paid by the current post to the wonders of couch cushion design. We’ve piled up a (largely) admirable collection of jobs, taken by a randomly ran hunt online. Join us as we have a critical analysis of design philosophies and the design, methods of living room furniture re-appropriation.
A obvious derivative of the Miesian box, this handsome job is “informalized” with the usage of vibrant, freeform roof panels. Taking further direction from the Archigrammotion, the project explores architecture as body wrap and propels sofa cushion architecture into new and exciting land.
