Anemone (Sofa) by Yi Xuan Lee
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Under the sea, the anemone is the protector of the fish, but when we enlarged the scale it let people felt afraid and have the meaning of defense. Because of the characteristic of the PU tube, it made a contrast between the feeling you sitting on it and the visual impression. The couch coat the user gently and softly just like the anemone protect the fish.
Creativity
In this project, what I mainly focus on is the visual tension. What I want to do is think outside the box of a sofa, and made a strong visual impact by combining two very contrast things, the shape of traditional sofa and the pompous figure of anemone.
Design Challenges
The hardest part is to tie tubes into bundles of anemone and then combined them to a big skin. Because of the characteristic of the PU tube, it made this work harder than it seems.
Production Technology
Tied up red and white PU tube by red iron wire, and make it a big skin to replace the sofa sheet.
