Mulian (Sofa) by Hamid Packseresht
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
A plethora of appealing designs and forms pass our looks throughout our daily lives as to our geographical locations, however, in the eyes of an industrial designer, each of them is a rich source of inspiration. Due to the vast climatic diversity and grand history of Iranians, we possess a rich background in these resources, one of which is the original Iranian instrument, such as Oud, Qishak, Tar, Tanbur, Tonbak, etc.
This 7m wide sofa has been designed for premium rooms and lobbies in luxurious hotels. The source of inspiration for this design has been the original Iranian musical instruments and so the dramatic story of the famous poetry which reads; It smells like the Moulian river It reminds me of the kindest lover And illustrates the return of a king to his homeland and his origin beautifully.
Design Challenges
This sofa has a built-in audio system which allows you to listen to Persian traditional instrumental songs using a dedicated mobile app to be entertained while waiting and have a better experience in regards with Persian culture and design.
Production Technology
This product, due to the organic form of the body and the middle form, can be made through a foam injection method to a metal casing. The sitting spot of this sofa is cut by a sponge-layer of polyurethane or the hot foam, and so cut out and coated with the body. The middle form, which can be covered with metal and wood, is to be executed by the professors of Iranian mosaic in the texturizing piece of Nastaliq's poetry Mulian. The treatment can be made of leather or fabric.
