daisuke motogi: lost in sofa

we often loose things in between the cushions of a sofa because they have fallen out of our pocket, or have just somehow found their way into the cracks, sometimes never to be found again, or perhaps stumbled upon accidentally while cleaning.

tokyo-based daisuke motogi‘s (daisuke motogi architecture) ‘lost in sofa’ plays on these occurrences, and has been designed to make the cracks between seat cushions purposeful, such as for storage.
