The På Sofflocket bench was designed by Swedish students Emma Nilsson, Johanna Westin & Lisa Frode and comes with quite a few original features. Said to be a mix of traditional and modern elements meant to “reinterpret and adapt the common kitchen sofa”, this intriguing looking piece of furniture has a minimalist design abundant in practicability. Complying with characteristics of contemporary living (need for extra space and people always on the run), this kitchen addition has plenty of built-in storage space under the seat for easy access. The back-rest also comes with a support for books, magazines, newspapers and so on. It is all up to the owner to organize the objects according to his or her needs. Even though this bench is not as comfortable as a regular sofa, we salute its creativity and functionality. På Sofflocket will be exhibited at Stockholm Furniture Fair in February. For those of you participating at the event, be sure to check it out up close.
