The dismembered cushions of the old sofa are arranged on a low, white table, and their boulder-like shapes are reinforced by metal frames. “It resembles a kind of japanese garden, where the rocks are substituted by structural cushions,” says Roberto Feo, co-founder of the London-based Spanish design duo. “By working with the idea of using a sofa in different parts, we ended up with a table for a base and cushions which are positioned in a way that opens up surfaces for other use, like placing books or everyday objects.”
“Composite” is the first item from a collection El Ultimo Grito is developing for Spanish furniture company Sofactual. “We wanted to build up a new line to open up the market to more conceptual design,” says Feo.
These images are prototypes of Composite; the final piece will be launched at the Milan Furniture Fair.
