a fallen leaf sofa by jbomers design

‘bomers’ #2′ by jeroen bomers

dutch company jbomers design has extended its ‘bomers’ series’ – a range of furniture informed by the form of a tree -with ‘bomers’ #2′. the piece is a sofa resembling a leaf just fallen, settled gracefully on the earth below. the hand-curved steel frame of the structure follows the same pattern as the veins of the greenery, adapting its natural structure and strength. surrounding the skeleton is specifically crafted leather-clad cushioning, however, the ‘veins’ of the seat are left exposed for a pronounced aesthetic in contrasting colors.
