‘holey poley’, a modular daybed concept designed by australian-born, copenhagen-based furniture design student clinton stewart,
is composed solely of wooden poles and interchangeable cushions, adaptable to a range of seating configurations.
a primary wool mattress is gridded with a series of holes, into which short and long poles are inserted to function as legs for the unit.
atop the the longer poles, users can place one of a series of cushion models to create armrests or seating divisions.

‘holey poley’ is part of the sydform exhibition of nordic furniture design, at the code 11 trade fair during copenhagen design week 2011.
