This unique yellow sofa, named Pleats-Pleats by designer Daniel Hedner of Imaginary Office is made from 19 strips of upholstered polyurethane foam, woven around a powder-coated steel frame. Is this the modern interpretation of macrame Janel predicted this time last year?

Personally, we love the texture created by the woven upholstery — what an interesting and inspiring technique. It reminds us of the Flocks large scale knit poufs. We can also imagine the Pleats-Pleats design as a DIY. Using old t-shirts sewn around foam tubing, one could use any discarded metal chair frame.

What do you think of Pleats-Pleats?

The prototype for Pleats Pleats debuted at this year's Stockholm Furniture Fair as part of the Greenhouse young designers' showcase. Imaginary Office is an architecture and design studio. Via: dezeen.
