Object: Sofa/Daybed, 2012, prototype
Description: Ash wood, 100% cotton upholstery | Dimensions: 180 x 80 x 90cm
When on household shopping trips as a child with my mother on the Creek side in the Bur Dubai area, I used to see the preparation of natural cotton upholstery. They used a process that is not common these days. Life styles have evolved in the city and furnishing manufacturers have shifted to industrial sponge upholstery. The 2-seater LAZY FOLDS uses the same old technique of cotton preparation and stuffing, celebrating the comfort of the old days. As a sofa the 6.5 meter mattress is folded 7 times. When extended to 3 folds it transforms into a low daybed.
