The 'Aku' by Silje Softing Also Serves as a Cushy Seat

Room dividers are often used to break up larger spaces or to offer a sound barrier in an office environment; 'Aku' by Silje Softing offers a third use in the form of a comfortable seat. This foam-like room divider has a bottom "foot" that doubles as a seat or a place for storage.

I love the idea of room dividers, but they're often unsightly barriers rather than modern, multifunctional pieces of furniture in their own right, like this example. See more shots of 'Aku' by Silje Softing above.
