Furniture with an Architect’s Eye


Creative collaborations abound at the Design Centre. Recently, design houses have linked up with world-renowned architects to create new and innovative furniture. A good example is Flexform’s ‘Adagio’ sofa by Daniel Libeskind, which perfectly combines the architect’s philosophy of forceful, iconic forms with the idea of sober elegance. Characterised by unusual angles and Italian craftsmanship, its sloping upholstered back is high and inclined, while the cushions and seats are asymmetrical in form. The look is similar to the aesthetic found in his international architectural and urban design projects. “It brings together a synergy of architectural form and everyday comfort,”Libeskind says of the piece.
