Innovative couch

Category: Design projects

Year: 2005

For the furniture company Perida I designed, together with four other students, a new couch. This couch is aimed at a slightly older demographic, who prefer comfortable, high quality furniture.

The couch has an innovative feature: the back-rest can rotate some degrees, transforming the sitting position. In an instant you go from an upright sitting position to lounging.

Of this design a prototype was built, which was displayed at a fair.
