The Float Sofa by Karim Rashid is Like an Abstract Painting

New York-based designer Karim Rashid's latest furniture creation, the Float Sofa, is as colorful and contemporary as his past work. There is a cute and cartoonish aesthetic about this particular design that makes it stand out. The rounded, multihued elements are playful and youthful, adding a fun vibe to living spaces. In fact, the Float Sofa looks like an abstract painting. The vibrant elements act as the bold brush strokes on the solid backrest canvas.

Designed for Spanish furniture brand Sancal, the Float Sofa was recently presented at the Salone del Mobile 2012 in Milan, Italy. The Float Sofa was named because of the illusion that the curving backrest is hovering above the ground, even though in reality it is supported by turned wooden legs.
