The Bikini Island collection challenges traditional furniture layouts that follow a unidirectional pattern. No longer are people forced to arrange their furniture to face a static point: the television. The generation of tablet users can now enjoy more freedom and, therefore, creativity when it comes to their surroundings in the home.

Designed by furniture designer Werner Aisslinger for Moroso, the Bikini Island collection is comprised of low, flat elements designed for mobile computing. Aisslinger reveals, "The project is designed to reflect our heterogeneous lives. [It’s] an in-house landscape for reading on tablets, watching movies on our phones, meditation and talking."

Everything in the Bikini Island suggests ideal comfort for the individual rather than for a particular activity even though it is inspired by technology. Stats for Omnidirectional Furniture Sets Trending: Older & Warm
