SOFA_XXXX
2010

“A chair becomes a sofa, and a sofa becomes a chair.”


I see the beauty of a simple geometrical structure such as the Eiffel tower and the repetition fascinates me. I wanted to translate it into furniture.


SOFA_XXXX is made of just 4 different lengths of sticks, rings and joints. The parts on their own do not seem to be special, but when put together in a regular pattern their beauty appears.


SOFA_XXXX is in the permanent collections of Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in NYC, and Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London.
