Our Little White Sofa

Simplicity is the key factor in all of Christian Vivanco designs; always in search by the unification, not only of forms or surfaces, but of functions and uses, customs and necessities, always trying to create something simple, something beautiful. Something that becomes apparent with ‘our little white sofa’. The sofa, designed for both outdoor and indoor use, was conceptualised while searching for an all-together furniture, but at the same time looking for a new expression for this kind of piece. I want one!!

Accelerated Seating…..

Copenhagen based designer Phillip Grass has designed this wonderfully sleek sofa (its a digital prototype) – Acceleration, which is “futuristic with a sense of acceleration and speed; organic with seamless flowing forms”. He’s obviously inspired by spaceships, airplanes and cars, as well as the structure of bones and the fluid forms of fish.

I’ve read a lot of criticism for this design on Dezeen, where I came across it first. But to the designer’s credit, he’s at least tried to create something different – every concept need not end up being a ‘master’ design, and yes, proportions could go wrong when you start with something. If the designer has the sense to refine and rework on mistakes, why not give him a chance? As for myself, I do like the aerodynamic form, in spite of the obvious references. And I do think a real world prototype would help erase all doubts…..
