assaf israel's daydream lounger for joynout interlocks like an infinity sign

milan design week 2017: designed by assaf israel, founder of joynout studio, ‘daydream’ is a sculpture-like furniture evoking the lemniscate or symbol for infinity. based on that, the product offers users new and unexpected ways of sitting, lounging and interacting — ultimately promoting a more relaxed and meditative state.

 

‘created in reaction to the current trend of perpetually moving forward, daydream is influenced by human experience, encouraging users to disengage with external distractions and find themselves in the space. however, when seating two, it promotes interaction by creating a synergy between users. in an alienated world, the daydream aims to bring people closer to one another’, notes the designer.

made in italy from high quality and durable materials, assaf israel’s daydream lounger for joynout is intended for both public and private spaces – seating up to two people comfortably. indeed, it is formed by two interlocking and identical cushioned panels — creating an object that has no clear beginning or end. nevertheless, its timber frame covered in kvadrat textiles offers it a peculiar character.

‘the daydream is not just another bench, nor a seat nor a chaise lounge – it’s a perception. we want users to be able to feel the sensation that our product provides – that for several minutes, they are able to connect to themselves and to other users. we want them to fully enjoy that innovative way of lounging, gaining a new perspective on the meaning of ‘living in the moment’ – assaf israel.
