“ON sofa bed” by Tapio Anttila Design
Herb sofa designed by Burak Kocak
Turkish designer Burak Kocak designed a multifunctional sofa Herb, which replaces the atmosphere of the whole room. Seating place is located on a wooden frame, the left side of which is the rack. And the right side is a table-jardinière. Furthermore, the object is equipped with a lamp, the location of which can be changed by moving it along a rounded wooden eaves. For the convenience of owners of laptops and other gadgets the rack has a built-in socket.
According to the designer, Herb offers the owner everything you need for life – a comfortable place to sit, a small library, lighting, power and space for a houseplant. Kocak himself is a student. So creating a subject he thought about the needs of those, who live in dorms and small apartments.
Herb is decorated neutrally: natural oak is used for the frame, the rack shelves are painted in white, the light fixture is painted in a pale blue, and the sofa is upholstered with Danish fabric Kvadrat.
