Inspired by the Movement of the Waves: Split Leather Sofa&Chairs

Alex Hull envisioned a leather and suede sofa for Gallery Fumi as portion of its exhibit at art and design fair PAD London 2012. Earlier this 2013, the designer also created the Split Chair, which perfectly adds as much as the furniture series. The pieces are dynamic, interesting to watch from every standpoint and especially elegant.

The idea that stood on the basis of the project is described by the designer as follows: “A balancing, visually light organic structure was inspired by the wave’s movement and the composite surfboard construction. Continuous leather form splits open to bare a more delicate and tactile suede interior, as though it’s been torn apart. The asymmetrical sofa bends and curves, echoing and hugging the human body, allowing its occupier to take a seat or lie down in it, using the outstretched arm as a chaise longue head rest”. Any personal thoughts you want to share in this creative furniture combo?
