Materia design by Marie Oscarsson
Couture is a flexible range of furniture best described as a modern take on traditional 1950s and 1960s handicraft. The seats, which in terms of textiles have features such as quilting and upholstered buttons, are built on a decorative base that creates an exciting in-between space and provides practical ’unloading’ surfaces. The aim with this piece was to find a new way of combining functions and to create an item of furniture with a homely feel that also helps you to work more easily – for example by having access to power sockets directly in the sofa. A restrained design language is used, but this is counterbalanced by the seats’ soft forms. The range also includes room divider and tables.
