The Haiku Sofa is designed by the Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi (Stine Gam & Enrico Fratesi). The sofa is a reinterpretation of a Haiku, a traditional, compact and evocative form of Japanese poetry, intended as a sensory image to suggest an emotion.
It has a rigid exterior with an enclosing shape, and a much softer and intimate interior, which suggests a protective function and encourages a sense of curiosity. The designers have pursued a subtle contrast in the combination of textiles to strengthen the intuitive sense of function. The legs, like four pencil marks, hold and elevate the sofa, enhancing the shape of the upholstery. Haiku is a series of two- and three-seating-sofas.
