It would be so convenient if all the clutter in life could just disappear. Only the essentials. Clean lines. If you replaced everything in your house with pieces from this series by Japanese architecture group NOIZ you would never need to worry about loose change under the couch cushions or crumbs on the table again. Also having a couch that you can only see from certain angles is a convenient party trick.
Okay, that probably doesn’t work, but it’s interesting how these pieces play with our perception of three dimensional space and depth. Melding structure and aesthetic is also a good way to understand how a piece of furniture actually supports weight. The couch might need some throw cushions to make it workable, though… [Spoon & Tamago]
