I might get some for the kids' bedroom also.

{Design} Lost in sofa by Daisuke Motogi Architecture


{Design} Lost in sofa by Daisuke Motogi Architecture - Rue du chat qui peche

Things always get lost in sofas. Because they fall out of your pockets, or just because they have somehow fallen into the cracks of your sofa. Sometimes they resurface and sometimes they are never to be found again.
Tokyo-based architect Daisuke Motogi Architecture emphasised this trait of a sofa in this playful utility armchair design. The multitude of cracks are purposefully used for storage, items can be shelved between cushions.
