This was another external competition during my 3rd year. This time the brief was set by leading furniture company, Vitra. The brief was to design a unique sofa to fir into their bespoke collection. The use of unusual materials and processes were encouraged. I was inspired by the elegance and shape of old Riviera speed boats. I adapted the form of these stunning, luxury boats to fit a sofa. I also used the materials that could be found on these boats, such as teak, carbon fiber and of course luxury leather to create this sofa. I was very pleased with the outcome of this brief and could imagine it in a luxury apartment in the city or in a public space such as a museum or art gallery.
