Dezeen Showroom: created by Swiss architecture and design practice Studioforma, the Tribù sofa is a colourful seating island that invites socialising.

The Tribù sofa features an elliptic walnut wood base topped with pebble-shaped upholstered seats in various sizes and patterns.

The seats have backrests for comfort while brass detailing on the frame and legs adds to the sense of warmth and luxury.

The sofa was designed by Studioforma founder Alex Leuzinger, who infused it with his memories of visiting Africa as a child – an influence that can most overtly be seen in the patterning on the textiles.

"The seating island of Tribù is celebrated as a place of socialising and simultaneously reflects the uniqueness of everyone in our society today," said Studioforma.

The design is suited to public areas such as lobbies and includes integrated USB ports in the base to allow sitters to charge their devices.
