Lost in sofa armchair by Daisuke Motogi

June 28th, 2011 by retail design blog

This comfy armchair design comes from Japanese architect Daisuke Motogi and is called “Lost in Sofa”. As its unusual name suggests, the chair has the ability to “lose” objects. Meaning that it allows its users to insert various items into it, such as notebooks, phones or the remote control, up to the point when one can not see them anymore. This is possible due to the numerous small fluffy squares that make up the chair’s exterior. The crazy idea hit the designer after noticing how small things easily get lost under or inside the sofa and are not to be found for years. So why not create something that would serve this original purpose? We don’t know about you guys, but we find this armchair idea highly functional,witty and intriguing. We wonder if small naughty pets could fit in there…
