Called Entailles, the sofas can be arranged in different configurations to make a one, two or three-seater platform.

Tables slot into gaps between the seats.

Entailles by Philippe Nigro for Ligne Roset

Here's a bit of text from Ligne Roset:


ENTAILLES
"Viewing everyday life through the prism of objects which are surprising, yet sensible."

Entailles by Philippe Nigro for Ligne Roset

Since 1999, Philippe Nigro has worked as a freelance designer; he is also an associate of the De Lucchi studio in Milan, where he works on numerous projects in the fields of product design, furniture and lighting design, interior architecture, promotional events and scenography.

To use the exact words of Philippe Nigro, these divans are ‘quasi-articulated’ by means of ‘functional notches’ which can accommodate small pedestal tables (for reading, writing, working, drinking, eating...).

These simple details confer on the divans a whole new aesthetic totally at odds with conventional images, whilst making it possible to obtain different seat depths and back heights. In order to fully respond to the original idea, it is possible to have the notches in a different colour and/or fabric. The end result is a ‘living’ divan, which seems to be in constant movement.

    Functional notches are cool. Don't like it otherwise, the yellow blobs will age so badly.

    when you sit such kind of sofa;it is not comfortable because pieces can be easily divided as not indicated above.
    Moreover when you put a tables slot;you will make division easier.So I am wondering what is the point of this project.
