This sofa is what functional designs should be all about. Granted, this sort of art also comes with an above average price, but the classic look with an edge will make it a staple piece in your home for years to come.
Daisuke Motogi, the creator, called it “Lost in Sofa”, giving a pretty straight forward description of its unique purpose. The Japanese designer played on people’s misfortune of letting coins, phones or remotes slide between the couch cushions, only to be found after a great deal of time and stress, and created a sofa where you can stick these objects and many more intentionally. It all sounds a bit funny, but we actually find it useful. You can place books, pens, glasses and whatever you can think of between the grey plushy squares – just don’t put them too far in and forget about them.
Your kids can also use it, as a sort of a treasure site, or you can hide small surprises, letters or gifts in it.
We haven’t tried it yet, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the square cushions can spread far enough so that a coffee mug fits in-between.
