Wrinkled Sofa

A very interesting example of the results that can be achieved when the project starting point is the manufacturing process.

Peter Traag's starting point when designing the Sponge sofa was the manufacturing process more than the product itself. 
He came out with an interesting idea using a flexible mold and a hugely oversized fabric cover, the injected foam creates random wrinkles that strongly characterize the product. The sofa has no rigid structure and is the pressure of the foam inside the flexible mold to determine the final shape.

Great projectual exercise, the texture is really unique.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
