The pieces of the 'Stop Playing With Yourself,' puzzle furniture are too large to be moved by a single person. Michael Alvisse designed this interactive, modular furniture to facilitate the idea of communal effort.

The concept is based on a classic wooden puzzle. The eco-friendly felt upholstered foam elements can be arranged to create a sofa, chair, table, a bed, or simply a soft sculpture.

Implications - The Green Building Council Australia has recognized the puzzle furniture as being "eco innovative." Michael Alvisse's business with his partner called Schamburg + Alvisse was also awarded by the Powerhouse Museum for their sustainable designs. The furniture made by Schamburg + Alvisse is made out of "recycled plastics, low-formaldehyde glues and eco timbers."
