Cool “Lost in Sofa”, the Black Hole of Small Objects

This comfy armchair design comes from Japanese architect Daisuke Motogi and is called “Lost in Sofa”. As its unusual name suggests, the chair has the ability to “lose” objects. Meaning that it allows its users to insert various items into it, such as notebooks, phones or the remote control, up to the point when one can not see them anymore. This is possible due to the numerous small fluffy squares that make up the chair’s exterior.  The crazy idea hit the designer after noticing how small things easily get lost under or inside the sofa and are not to be found for years. So why not create something that would serve this original purpose? We don’t know about you guys, but we find this armchair idea highly functional,witty and intriguing. We wonder if small naughty pets could fit in there…

    Looks cool. But it looks really difficult to effectively clean.

    Very cool! Perhaps the concept of creating spaces for you to stick your stuff in the chair actually might prevent things from getting lost? You don’t have to put things on the seat next to you, where they slip down beside or beneath the cushion.

    It’d be fun looking through this when you lose the remote.

    Whoa! Looks super cool. It would be best to have one if you don’t have toddlers. If I get this, I know that whenever I can’t find something, it’s somewhere in there!
