Dezeen Showroom: Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created a flat-packed sofa for Finish furniture brand Basta.

Wanders, who is Basta's creative director, designed the sofa so that it would be easy to assemble and disassemble, making it appropriate for modern homes and lifestyles.

"We have a new audience today: it's the generation that is always on the move," explained the designer.

"Some of the problems that we are trying to solve is how do you navigate the narrow layouts of European houses? How do you make sure that your furniture travels with you when your job brings you to another city?"

The sofa is available in grey and blue

The sofa is built on a metal frame that can be folded and disassembled for easy transportation and then assembled without tools. Cushions and legs are then added to the frame meaning that multiple reinterpretations are possible using the same frame.
