This beautiful sofa from Urban Collection was a concept designed by Marta Antoszkiewicz, whose Bulb Table and Table with Chairs have been featured on Freshome. This sofa’s two heat-formed planks and minimal fasteners form the basis of this clean, modern design. Its cantilevered backrest is locked into place when you lay your weight on it, and its leather cushions slip in through large cutouts in the top surface, resting on the second curve.

The innovative SKiN Sofa was designed by Jean Nouvel, a French architect. The supporting structure, made of tubular pretensioned steel, shapes the double-sided leather with geometric incisions.

If utilized appropriately, lighting can adding warmth and energy to any room. Designers have made use of its effect in brightening homes, but have gone a step further by incorporating it into furniture, as in this sofa made of acrylic that lights up from within.
