Intriguing Furniture You Can Lean Against The Wall By YOY Design

As strange as it looks, the Canvas furniture, showcased at Milan Design Week 2013, is a real object and not a simple avant-garde painting with baroque details. We’ve spotted this peculiar furniture item on This is Colossal and we found out that Canvas, a canvas shaped chair with a drawing of a chair, is the work of YOY, a Japanese design studio that pays a special interest in creating unusual design, that definitely stands out and makes an impression on whoever ends up seeing it.

Canvas is cool, lightweight and ingenious. “A frame made of wood and aluminum is covered by an elastic fabric printed with texture of a canvas and a drawing of chair.”  You can use this “work of art” by leaning it against a wall. The Canvas furniture comes in three different shapes, so basically you can choose from a stool, an armchair or a sofa (a two-person seat). The fun part is that your guests will have no idea that the exquisite work of art you keep in your house is actually real furniture. In case you have an edgy sense of style and you are not “afraid” of avant-garde, you can definitely upgrade your home with intriguing furniture items and completely transform it!

    Incredible Stuff !!! It’s a beautiful, acoustic and functional piece of furniture that is developed from the concept of a wall coming to life to create a ‘living wall’.

    Honoré de Balzac –1799-1850– the French novelist, would’ve loved this type of furniture!!
    Being quite poor, he dreamed of a decorated house with beautiful furniture and since he couldn’t afford even a wooden stool, he would write on pieces of paper: “Oriental Rug”, “Louis XV armchair”, “Vase with cut flowers”, etc. and attached this signs about his room.
    It was his way of day dreaming.
    Eventually he married a wealthy woman, and when he was ready to acquire all his beautiful objects of desire, since money was no longer an issue, he died.
