Furniture is capable of altering the mood and feel of the room as well as grab a person’s attention and draw them in, and that’s certainly what the Image sofa does. Inspired primarily by the famous Chinese painting, Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains of Yuan Dynasty, the bold features and spirit of the painting have been modernized and reimagined as a sleek, domestic item of furniture.
The point of focus is the visually interesting and truly unique backrest, that has encapsulated the vast size and immense depth of the mountains. This is beautifully contrasted by the seat surface, which is made from a transparent acrylic that captures the tranquillity and serenity of lake water.
The aesthetics haven’t overshadowed the usability; careful attention was paid to the backrest to ensure an ergonomic seating position, while the addition of a table elevates the level of functionality!
