This was a design piece where seating and sculpture definitely met. Today we’re taking a look at one of Piero Lissoni‘s most remarkable concepts of 2018: his Eda-Mame sofa for B&B Italia.
The concept for the Eda-Mame sofa had the intention of fusing three types of seating: high-back chair, easy chair, and a pouf. Three seating options fused in one product! With a figure that reminds many who look at it of a soybean, this sofa provides a different feeling to whoever sits down on it.
Eda-Mame is made of molded foam and upholstered in stretch fabric with light stitching. Its legs are made of steel with the touch of a pewter painted finish. When it comes to the colors in which this product is available the ones that are more recurring are yellow, green, grey and orange though there are other color options.
Not to mention the design of the product which makes it unique also in its presentation. Its curvaceous appearance makes it look soft and very attractive to sit on. When placed in a living room this couch, regardless of the color picked, not only becomes an object of comfort but a sculpture in of its own.
This project was made from Piero Lissoni to B&B Italia. The couch has already earned an honored spot during last year at the B&B Italia floor at Space Furniture’s Sydney showroom.
Fun fact: it is rumored that Piero Lissoni, the Milan designer who created this unique furniture piece, might have been inspired by a Japanese restaurant he adores to eat at.
