One's first impression of the Fanstudio IWA Collection might likely be to assume that these living room furnishings would be quite hard to the touch. Contrary to what you'd expect and despite their apparently rigid lines, these chesterfields and armchairs have quite a lot of cushy give.

The primary material found in these pieces is polyurethane foam, which is what gives the seating objects such an unexpected coziness. When no weight is bearing down on them, the cushions and the backrests remain firm and maintain their planar-looking surfaces that compose quite abstract, geometric and unconventional couches.

Spanish Designer Jorge Goval finished off the compressible structures of the Fanstudio IWA Collection with a flexible synthetic skin. It stretches as the surfaces slump and completes the pieces with crisp and bold color aesthetics.
