Sleek and sophisticated, the Hamper Sofa may appear simple at first, but upon closer inspection it becomes apparent that a lot more is going on than first meets the eye. After the initial reaction, people will immediately note the wooden slats making up the base and armrests of the couch. It is this detail that inspired by name of the Hamper Sofa. Essentially, it looks something like a dirty clothes bin. Thankfully, no dirty clothes come with it.

Designed by Ezio Riva and Arturo Montanelli for Passoni Nature, the Hamper Sofa is also quite lengthy, giving it a stronger presence in a room. Lastly, there is a slight curve to its aesthetic that softens its strict silhouette. Overall, the Hamper Sofa was influenced by northern European style.
