Optical Illusion: The Gravity Living Room Collection by Dizajno
Have you ever spent so much time on the couch — or just perhaps been so tired in general — that you wished the universe would just help you up halfway in order to get moving? For those of us who could use a bit of a nudge, there’s the Gravity living room collection straight out of Slovakia from Dizajno, the folks behind the ever-forwarded “Cirrus” couch that looks exactly like a puffy white cloud. The Gravity collection tilts the inhabitants of its sofa and chairs at a 45-degree angle, quite literally helping them halfway up out of their seat. Call it ergonomically questionable, call it the bum’s rush — but you definitely can’t call it boring. The series is accompanied by equally jaunty and assymmetrical accent tables and wall shelving, as well as a boulder-inspired ottoman/pouf that doubles as an impromptu chaise lounge when fitted underneath the edge of the sofa or chair… presuming, of course, that you’d like to sit for more than just a few seconds. In total, the series includes a sofa, chair, wing chair, pouf, end table and coffee table. Maybe a smidgen more fashionable than functional, we’re still willing to give the collection the benefit of the doubt… well, at least half of one, anyway.
