The Xarxa Sofa: More Cushion than Pushin’

The Xarxa Sofa: More Cushion than Pushin’

It was about time a designer found a way to eliminate the hard “chair” part of the chair, and Spanish designer Marti Guixé developed the Xarxa Sofa for the Italian brand Danese with just that intention.  Configured around a hidden wooden seat and buttressed by slim metal arcs, the Xarxa Sofa consists most prominently of five gigantic pillows which can be rearranged and restructured as necessary to accommodate how you feel like relaxing.  In fact, you can just as easily adjust it as take it apart to use the pillows elsewhere.  Overall, it’s a cool chair that pretty much cuts to the chase and gives us exactly what we want: all pillows, all the time. – via

    When cushions are made with highest quality threads, fills, fabrics and other materials they will endure for years. I am wondering what kind of density are those cushions… I would like to have some zippers there to do the proper cleaning and some butterfly corners to make it more vivid… Anyway design of this sofa is very welcoming!

    Pretty wacky idea – looks hard to do basic things like sit around and chat or watch a movie: All those cushions are in the way! Perfect for what it’s displayed to do though – be a comfy place to sit and read or listen to music, perhaps.
