Items can be stored by wedging them into slots between the upholstered cubes that form the seat.

Here's a bit of text from the designer:

Lost in sofa

Things often get lost under the sofa. It's ordinary for a coin which slipped out of your pocket, or a never-to-be-found remote to be accidentally found in between/underneath the sofa cushions. Maybe you'll find a forgotten 10,000yen bill that you once hid there...

Size : W900 D700 H700

    Good luck finding your keys in that :)

  • so, a nice mix of hofmann's kubus chair and bookinist-by-nils-holger-moormann
    it happens

  • Why none didn't think about it before?

    Fun and repulsive at the same time. My kids would love it, but I would be afraid of what I would find in there.

      Come to think of it, "fun and repulsive at the same time" is the kind of person I try to be.

    This will be a nightmare to produce – so many stitches. And therefore bloody expensive, so no one can/will buy it…

  • My nephew would love this .. at least I know where to look now!

  • Bob

    Where or how do I buy this??

  • bigeyeslittlesoles

  • My son would love this ..

  • I emailed them and they don't have price yet but I want one so bad it hurts I will go to china t get one if I have to.

  • zaza

    it's brillant idea, i would love to have one or sell to my clients. But one thing I doubt about the design, which is saying it can insert a cup of coffee……since i am not sure how's the strength between pads/ cubes, it may too loose to hold the coffee cup or too strong to squeeze the cup n coffee leak/ jump out…..hmm
