swedish design students, emma nilsson, johanna westin and lisa frode have sent us images of their latest project, ‘på sofflocket’. the design uses traditional and contemporary techniques to reinterpret and adapt the common kitchen sofa.

the new design offers the same functions as the traditional bench but is adapted to suit the needs of the modern family and their way of living. the storage space located under the seat is separated into two parts allowing for easy access and organization. the back of the bench provides further storage for books, newspapers and magazines, reflecting the more open living spaces occurring in today’s homes. 

the bench is crafted out of locally produced swedish pine, indigenous to the nordic regions, with elm wood detailing.

‘på sofflocket’ will be on show at the stockholm furniture fair in february 2011.
