The Pinsofa 1 by Demeter Fogarasi is Made with Seamstresses in Mind

Although the Pinsofa 1 could easily appeal to anyone, it seems to have been designed with seamstresses in mind. As its name gives away, the backrest is made up of giant ball-ended pins like those typical in sewing and alterations. Of course, since they are made out of wood rather than metal, the back of the Pinsofa 1 could also be mistaken for enlarged toothpicks.

Designed by Demeter Fogarasi during a project called The New Textile Furniture at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, the Pinsofa 1 is subtly abstract and entirely modern. The Hungarian designer writes, "My main idea was to have a playful concept, what refers to the inner child in every one of us. Enlarged object by themselves generate the feeling of being little as children." Stats for Playfully Pinned Couches Trending: This Year & Buzzing
