Contemporary sofa design – the cantilevered sofas by Paulo Kobylka
An original and unusual interpretation of a daily object – this is what Brazilian architect Paulo Kobylka is offering – a set of cantilevered sofas designed to look like concrete slabs. The set shows a contemporary sofa design in minimalist style and an appearance as if concrete slabs are topped over one another.
Creative and original contemporary sofa design
The inspiration for this contemporary sofa design lies within architecture which is most natural as the designer is an architect. The possibilities of concrete for creating various structures, different from buildings, have been successfully exploited in this design. Simple, straight lines, strict geometry – this is what defines the two sofas which the designer called PK1 and PK2. Both models are upholstered in grey and feature three main elements – a horizontal base, a seat, and a low vertical back. The couch allows an arrangement in which the cushion of the PK2 sofa is fitted over the corner of the PK1 model and together they form an L-shaped long sitting area. The grey upholstery underlines the resemblance with concrete elements.
Cantilevered contemporary sofa design for modern home interior
Both models have offset cushions and the difference in levels leaves small niches where interior accents can be displayed. The cushions provide enough weigh support even if a person is sitting on the overlapping section. Whether used separately or as an ensemble, the cantilevered contemporary sofa design will give functionality and convenience to the living room. It can be accentuated with splashes of color on a carpet or wall art and transform a boring interior into a dynamic and exciting space.
