Fernando Mastrangelo is a designer known for integrating natural landscapes and wonders into his furniture pieces, and the Drift Sofa is a realistic example that encapsulates a melting glacier using concrete materials and a blue toned color palette. The couch is constructed using concrete to form the rock base and finished with a luxe velvet cushion to render the seating comfortable and functional.

The sofa is constructed using cement to recreate the solid ice-like base. The rock is rendered dimensional with a crater texture that features an ombre coloring that shifts from grey to a dark blue. The hues take inspiration from melting glaciers found in Patagonia. The sofa is finished with a plush velvet cushion backing and seat.

Mastrangelo's sofa is simultaneously both art and functional furniture.
