Plush is precisely what makes furnishings so comfortable for the human body, making a piece such as the Onigiri Pouf such an ergonomic success. It hasn't been designed to match the mechanics of the sitter's form; like a bean bag chair, this cozy item gently contours you as you sink your weight into it.

Alessandro Di Stefano designed this playful sofa for the Formabilio store. Inspired specifically by the Onigiri rice ball, the oversized cushion takes the full form of a staple Asian food, embodying a slight dimple in its surface to invite someone to take a seat. A darker textile differentiates the backrest of the Onigiri Pouf Armchair, and all of the fabric that goes into its creation is wonderfully eco-friendly. It suits an appetite for softness and sustainability.
