An adaptable assemblage of geometric parts from the Parisian studio
Grid is a modular sofa / daybed designed by Paris-based studio Pool for French design manufacturer Petite Friture. True to the studio’s graphic identity, the sofa is a symphony of geometric forms that can be arranged and rearranged in a myriad of different configurations.
The sofa can be entirely deconstructed, but each piece is essential to the never-ending puzzle. Grey cotton rectangles provide a solid foundation and neutral background for two colorful, leather semi-circle cushions that serve various functions. The armrest can become a headrest and the backrest can turn the sofa into a daybed with the help of a movable side table. Simultaneously, the side table can be added as for an extra surface to either end of the sofa or removed entirely.
The natural Walnut frame is striped with a visible crisscross of black straps, creating a visual rhythm beneath the grey cushions. It is perhaps this tiny detail that ties together the separate pieces, creating a sort of Modernist tableau rather than simple living room furniture.
