in designing the ‘ottoman’ for moroso, scholton & baijings began looking at the form and function of daybeds, whose multiple uses accommodate for sitting, leaning, lounging or lying done, alone or with another. in addition they had the desire to incorporate the textile design, ‘blocks & grid’ that they conceived for maharam.

‘ottoman’ was realized in the atypical fashion of selecting the color and composition prior to dictating the form. by inverting the creative process, the work achieves proportions tailored to the employed textile. whereas the traditional ottoman is used for resting ones feet or sitting, the geometric patterning of the fabric results in a rounded form oriented towards reclining. the piece features sweeping contours balanced by the sharp geometry of the fabric, which achieves both an aesthetic balance and functionality; while a lowered seat height offers an open piece of furniture that allows for more freedom of movement.
