A new sofa is ready to make things fun and quirky around the house. The Pinsofa, just in case, you can’t figure it out yet, is a pincushion. No, we won’t expect you to stick pins on the sofa, but the special seat is a life-sized version.
The Pinsofa is a playful furniture piece that will make you remember your childhood. Having one in your house will probably make you think of those times when you imagine you’re smaller and everything is bigger around you. Your “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” dream will become a reality with the Pinsofa, but everything is just for fun.
Design: Demeter Fogarasi
Those objects that appear giant or super-sized can make you feel really small. It will make you think you’re young and everything will be all right. This cute sofa can be considered as an abstract piece. It features wooden pins that function as legs. They appear as if pierced through the soda, but they are there for support. The circles you see are the “pinheads” that can also serve as armrest and backrest.
The seat section features two layers of foam underneath a fabric. There is a plywood structure while the legs are supported by metal fixings. It can be screwed so it’s also easy to assemble and disassemble.
Designer Demeter Fogarasi is the same guy that introduced the poetic furniture Frozen Textile Armchair. He was inspired by the needles sticking out of his needle pillows for this creation. He shared, “Walking through the studio with beautiful sunshine coming through the windows, I discovered a new beauty in the needles sticking out of my needle pillows. This was my very first impression – I told myself this was so inspiring that I should be working with it.”
The Pinsofa is made of ash wood and the usual fabric upholstery material. It measures 7x178x64 cm and is actually an old design. It’s also a decade old, but we still like the design, and we believe it is timeless. It’s also contemporary but can bring you back to the old times when you were carefree and without worries. Have one placed in your living room and enjoy short moments when you can be who you used to be when you were little.
