Casting Doubt on Its Size and Volume: Blur Sofa by Marc Thorpe
Marc Thorpe‘s Blurred Collection for Moroso at the Soho showroom in NYC this October revealed an interesting furniture piece. Blur Sofa is covered in a knitted material displaying a gradient pattern. The designer described it as “a sofa with a deliberately indefinite, disappearing shape that casts doubt on the rational concept of scale as it cancels the relationship between space and volume. It plays on creating a feeling of uncertainty as to its size and shape“.
Discovered by Freshome on Design MIlk, Blur sofa brings a surprising visual effect to a room, its originality leading to interiors with character. The product was developed on a wooden frame covered with different-density polyurethane foam. The aim of both designer and manufacturer “to push the limits of technology, material, form and space” is successfully reached through this sofa design that intrigues and bewilders.
