spot is a comfortable sofa that with the addition of several accessories to its structure can be used to study, work, place and store objects, and recharge electronic devices. It offers more than one option of configuration, backrest length and number of arms can be chosen, for example, creating different combinations to suit several layouts and needs while adapting to both large and small spaces, the latter benefiting from the add-on accessories that supply in one place the needs of a room.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Its differential advantage are the many functions performed by its add-on accessories. The desk placed in the back of the backrest, intended for studying and leisure-related activities, can also function as a sideboard. The arms and shelf can be used to place personal items. The wooden side box with two lids and sliding tray not only facilitates the access to the everyday objects that can be stored in it, but also functions as a side table and has two sockets for recharging electronic devices.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The use of living rooms as spaces of interaction and coexistence, as well as the habits of the contemporary everyday life, were investigated with the objective of identifying behavioral changes in families and their real needs within the family room. From this research, it became clear that there is a need for study and work areas, for a space to place and store objects and for an electronics charging station in the room. The design of this sofa attempts to fulfill these needs.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to meet the needs of the contemporary individual, offering a new way of looking at the furniture that surrounds our daily life in order to provide well-being in a welcoming and functional environment that stimulates human relations and interaction with objects. The idea is that, at the same time one is using the add-on desk, they can engage with those sitting on the couch watching television or even recharging electronic devices in the sockets available on the side box.
