Chic and simple, Gael Manes has designed an asymmetrical sofa that is nevertheless full of personality. Although subtle in detail, the slight incline on one side, the thin wooden legs and armrests as well as the sectioned body come together to create a piece of furniture that adds style to a space.

Made with contemporary homes in mind, the asymmetrical sofa is inspired not only by nature, but also the Menhir de Kerloas. a neolithic stone monument found in France. Swipe Life writes, "Manes designs and fashions the sofa through the musing of any place, story or whatever intrigues the curiosity of man." This is evident in her inspiration and her creations. Yet the the asymmetrical sofa remains approachable, which is key for homes.
