Filed Under: Chairs An Unique Design Sofa – The Ostrea Sofa by Annika Göransson

Annika Göransson is an industrial designer from the Danish Design School that focused on furniture and live in Copenhagen. The Ostrea sofa is one of her unique design sofa that has recently won a competition from the Upholstery Guild in Copenhagen. She was inspired by the 19th century’s bombastic divans and armchairs, which were richly decorated with tassels, fringes and drapes. She converted the ornaments into structures and I translated the bombastic shapes into a flowing, organic form.

This beautiful sofa furniture has been exhibited at the Danish Museum of Art and Design. At the moment and until the end of August all the furniture are being exhibited at Skagen Odde Naturcenter in Denmark. The construction of the sofa consist of a base sculptured out in dense styrofoam. The sofa is covered partly with cold foam for comfort, the woollen fabrics are glued on and sewn together by hand. The orange thread defines the flexible part of the sofa and is also hand sewn.
