Here's some more information from the designer:
In the context of the Passages during the IMM Cologne 2011, January 17 to 23, Frederik Roijé presents his latest design Slow Sofa at Galerie Fiebach & Minninger. The Slow Sofa is a collaboration of two pieces of furniture and materials in one object.
Slow as a durable starting principle in the design of interior products in order to continuously produce new creations. Within the food culture slow is already more developed. Fascinated by this belief the Slow Sofa is designed.
The Slow Sofa is a family of nine elements that can be applied in many compositions at various locations. An intelligent design for a new period in time.
Manufactured with local industries and craftspeople, with as many as possible natural never-ending and recyclable resources.
