The sofa, called Dynamic Life, is controlled by a touch pad and can be configured in three ways.

Dynamic Life Matali Crasset 2011
Sofa gradually turned bourgeois, a fossilized object; a sort of cetacean who got stuck on the domestic universe and takes a lot of space giving back a little service. Hence the idea to ask him more generosity and identification with modern life.
When touch pad became part of everyday life, an object conceived not for a passive comfort but for an active one. A dynamism which distances itself from complicated mechanisms; an ease of handling which proposes three different moments in the same place.
