Absent sofa by Numen/For Use for Prostoria

Dezeen Showroom: Croatian-Austrian design collective Numen/For Use has created the Absent sofa for furniture brand Prostoria, which is designed to create a sitting position somewhere between upright and lying down.

Both the low-slung seat and backrest are rendered as geometric, blocky shapes, which are bridged by a triangular pillow that fits neatly into the crevice between the two elements.

The seat is tapered lightly upwards, enabling a reclined, yet ergonomic lounging position.

Its cold-foam filling is cured without additional heat, creating an open-cell structure that provides support for the user while preventing heat build-up.

Absent is a modular system, which allows for the depth of the seat and the height of the backrest to be customised along with 160 different upholstery options.
