sand & birch diamond sofa
sand & birch explain the concept: "The Diamond sofa thought by Samanta Snidaro and Andrea Fino of Sand & Birch design studio is entirely realised in mirror-like aluminium. On the wide stripe 160 crystals of Swarovsky will be disposed creating images. The lamp on its side is a fluorescent or a led one."
I like thinking of the sofa this way...as a "provocative design", with..."predominantly aesthetical value" and I also wonder what would happen if this form was treated for contrast, for uber-functionalitly -- for instance, as a park bench with reading lamp, made of recycled materials...
