Leaf seat design award

Leaf Seat receives Design Award

We are thrilled for being awarded The German Design Award 2018 for the Leaf Seat! The pouf is inspired on nature and is bringing the outdoors inside. It was during our years in Singapore when the idea emerged for the stools. The aim was to design a unique pouf in a shape different from what was already there. When tessellated, it instantly turns into larger object like a daybed like a whole forest emerge. The options of interlocking are flexibel and endless.

We endlessly tried out different shapes and forms of leaves and how they would tesselate perfectly. Fnally a prototype was made but I still thought something was missing. Instantly I draw veins on top of the pouf and that was it! here we are! Our hard work has paid of with this amazing recognition of winning this Award!
