The typology of the sofa is omnipresent, material-intensive and petroleum-based. Its design mirrors not only the idea of seating comfort but also a state of mental convenience – synthetic foam is comfortable, alternatives are uncomfortable.
The mo sofa strives for a formal lightness and represents circular design. A distinctive feature is its local and natural materials. As a durable alternative, its reduced construction eases repairs, re-covering and its re-circulation. The upholstery is made of tufts of sheep’s wool, while the Swiss pine is an interpretation of traditional cushioned compartments.
The project focuses on SDG 12, “responsible consumption and production”.
