There is no way you can miss the Canape sofa by Lila Lang. One half is an old-fashioned, curvy style; the other half appears to be climbing the wall. You have to admit there is something whimsical about this design. On one hand, it fulfills a function (a place to sit); on the other hand, it’s a piece of art. If you tilt your head and view the wall as the floor, you will notice the piece is almost symmetrical so it can fit right or left corners. This design was featured in an exhibition (Parcours Saint Germaine) in Paris.
This sofa looks like a giant brush with thick bristles, but each soft bristle is designed to give you a relaxing massage. It’s a very different take on the most common furniture that we see in every house. The concept is the result of a student from Bucks New University. The design might look interesting, especially to teens, but unfortunately this sofa is not too practical.
The innovative SKiN Sofa was designed by Jean Nouvel, a French architect. The supporting structure, made of tubular pretensioned steel, shapes the double-sided leather with geometric incisions. This sofa appears to be lightweight and easy to move, but I’m not sure how much weight that leather can support.
