Spot (Multifunctional Sofa) by ninho design studio
2017 - 2018, Platinum A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
The inspiration came from the perception of the new ways of using space and the new habits of the contemporary everyday life, as well as from the desire to stimulate human relations, often forgotten, creating a welcoming and functional environment in which everything happens and memories can be created. spot combines materials and coatings, such as Freijo wood, leather-covered painted steel and knitted fabric, that complement each other in order to create a cozy tactile environment.
spot is a comfortable sofa that with the addition of several accessories to its structure can be used to study, work, place and store objects, and recharge electronic devices. It offers more than one option of configuration. Backrest length and number of arms can be chosen, for example, creating different combinations to suit several layouts and needs while adapting to both large and small spaces, the latter benefiting from the add-on accessories that supply in one place the needs of a room.
Design Challenges
The challenge was to meet the needs of the contemporary individual, offering a new way of looking at the furniture that surrounds our daily life in order to provide well-being in a welcoming and functional environment that stimulates human relations and interaction with objects. The idea is that, at the same time one is using the add-on desk, one can engage with those sitting on the couch watching television or even recharging electronic devices in the sockets available on the side box.
Production Technology
The arm, desk and shelf are made from steel plate that is laser cut, folded, welded, electrostatically coated and then upholstered with genuine leather. The backrest, made from wood and Freijo veneer, has a slope of 10 degrees and is only 35 mm thick. The seat is structured with Cedar wood and springs, and padded with foam, while the cushions are padded with feathers. The single-sized side box is covered with Freijo veneer and made through traditional woodworking techniques.
