Rocking Banana Sofa for Saloni 2009

This big golden banana sofa has integrated workings that create a gentle rocking motion. The fun couch was materialized by Lithuania-born designer Andrej Statskij for the Saloni 2009 furniture fair.

I have to admit the piece looks rather comfy, but the yellow color may not be my favorite. I think the same sofa in black would look much less like a banana and easily fit into a modern décor--but what fun would that be?

The other samples here are contemporary concepts also designed by Statskij, an architect and industrial designer.
