The Huit Sofa is a brilliant, beautiful and stylish sofa design, a combination of a comfortable seating and a infinity symbol. This Huit Sofa furniture concept was designed by Emanuel Laffon de Mazieres, a young french designer. As you can see the Huit sofa is a really unusual sofa designed in 8 or infinite sign shape. The continuous curve flows in a figure 8 so depending on your position, your point of view is never the same.
The design of this sofa is simple and modern. The curve also flows at different heights creating a cascading effect and a wall that provides one end privacy from the other. I don’t see a sofa like this in every home, but I think this sofa would be great for a party.

The Tsubomi Chair is a lounge chair sits low on the ground, close to the earth, spreading like the very moss it represents. Designed and manufactured by Leif.designpark, the Tsubomi “was born from an image of a bright future,” which may serve to explain its interesting chartreuse color. This color mimics nature, perhaps a strange moss. Its elemental hue is no mistake: Leif compares the Tsubomi to a flower growing in KuKunochi’s Forest, the Shinto god of trees. Root-like and branch-like, the lounge chair’s backrest extends towards the sky in organic growths—making the user of the Tsubomi a metaphorical bud.

Q-Couch is a sleek, modular, and multi-colored furniture that was designed by Belgium’s Frederik van Heereveld may catch your eye. This cool furniture "Q-COUCH" is made from the lightweight material ARPRO EPP and is designed by the Dutch Designer Frederik Van Heereveld (FEEK), designer and manufacturer of “functional, comfortable, and contemporary furniture” (emphasis Van Heereveld’s).
It’s a quirky name for a quirky company, grounded, as they are, in a philosophy of “functionality, futurism, and flexibility.” This last attribute may explain Van Heereveld’s consuming interest in EPP (Expanded Polypropylene), which he calls the “perfect material” for his aesthetic: “still only used in lightweight car parts and packaging, it is the ideal crossover with design furniture!”
Like some of the other extruded “–ene” products explored herein (see BASF and the Penta Lamp), EPP is an engineered plastic foam that is durable, resilient, and pleasing to the touch. Though similar in weight and texture to its cousin, Expanded Polystyrene—the ubiquitous white packaging foam—EPP is considerably stronger (no wonder they use it for energy absorption and impact protection in automobiles). Further, it’s temperature, light, and water resistant; easily recyclable; and non-toxic. Finally—and this is just a bonus at no extra cost to you—it repels petrol and other common household chemicals. Wow! No wonder it’s suitable indoors or out, in the living room or the shop, on land or on sea (just waiting for Van Heereveld to make a boat from the stuff).
Coming soon (says Van Heereveld): “extra features” to include bends and arm rests, for yet more creative permutations.

The Compod Lounger designed by Philipp Haselwander a range of furniture which forms a marked contrast to the traditional preconceptions about office work and provides a glimpse of how the future could be.
A combined sense of well-being, individuality and efficiency at work is generally considered a contradiction in terms. With compod however, Wiesner-Hager has proven otherwise: compod is a range of furniture which forms a marked contrast to the traditional preconceptions about office work and provides a glimpse of how the future could be. compod supports flexible computer work as well as creative communication, or simply invites you to lean back, relax or chat.
Available in three basic forms, a long chaise lounge, an upright chair and an interconnected double lounge, the Compod is more of a seating system than a group of individual chairs. Each design has an indentation which makes room for a laptop or tablet PC stand. More informations you can visit Wiesner-Hager’s.
