Whimsical, creative and original … but also functional? These clever love-seat-and-couch combinations are more that just artistic expressions – they are designed to provide seating options around the actual seating needs of individual people. In short: there is a surprising attention to comfort, patterns of use and personal preferences that run deeper than the offbeat and overt aesthetic impact of these furniture objects.
Designed by Philippe Nigro in attached-unit sets, each plays the function of lounge chair, love seat and sofa combined – visually and physically connected-yet-separated.
The odd angles and offbeat intersections make these playful pieces of furniture deceptively simple and childlike, while in actuality they require a great deal of custom craft work to manufacture and assemble.
