Overlap Sofa by Tomoki Doi

Home > Winners > #143572




DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Overlap

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sofa

INSPIRATION:
Rather than designing a sofa, we started with the idea of adding a sitting function to a simple rectangular object. By stopping to design the usual functions of a sofa, such as the seat, backrest and armrests, and instead thinking of the function from the combination of the two components, new uses and various combinations of sofas can be created. By shifting the axis of the sofa from its normal orientation, we also intended to change the gaze of the person sitting on it.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A sofa formed by overlapping two blocks While fulfilling its functionality, this sofa presents an object-like look that transforms its impression with every angle of view. The backrest and seat are off-axis and laid out to form a flat surface, thereby creating a variety of usages and arrangements. When several units are placed side by side, the backrest and the seating surface merge into a single element, blending into one.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Overlap is designed to be placed in the centre of a room or in a corner of a room without discomfort. In public spaces, they can be combined in straight lines, zigzags, squares or crosses.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Completed in October 2021

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
wood, urethan, fabric

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
W1955 D1063 H780

TAGS:
sofa, furniture, public space

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We sometimes use our environment to suit our bodies, such as sitting on stairs. In this project, rather than designing a sofa, we worked to create an object that has elements of a sofa and aimed to create a situation where different ways of sitting are created.

CHALLENGE:
The sofa is made up of two blocks, and we paid particular attention to the balance between the two. We have also made it easy to transport and carry in by making it possible to split it in two without any design discomfort.
