| 8 comments

South Korean product designer Ramei Keum has designed a leaning sofa called Pisa.

The collection includes a sofa and an armchair and comes in blue and yellow.

The seating is supported on an incline by loops of metal forming two legs.

Here's some more information from the designer:


This is a sofa designed by getting inspiration from ‘The Leaning Tower of Pisa’. Stability through balance is one out of elements considered when furniture is designed. However, it can be an element limiting design. I wanted to design a stable and convenient sofa in reality although it looked unstable. This form leaned forward as ‘The Leaning Tower of Pisa’ is a characteristics in this sofa’s form and helps this sofa play a role as a point furniture giving tension to simple space.

    Very nice design. My first reaction was; ‘where can I buy them?’. I still happy whit my old sofa with the same shape but not canted. But never the less, I like this canted version.

    I love the strength VS fragility concept. Successful in making the user feel a bit uncomfortable before they even sit on it. But obviously looks fine since the seat doesn’t actually lean. Nice!

    nice late 90ies recap, and I like the “communication eagerness” it expresses by leaning towards the conversation partner, as opposed to the post millenial deep- slouchy-loungers. good understated style with a twist that makes sense and adds character.
