Haiku by GamFratesi, a Copenhagen-based studio founded by Danish architect Stine Gam and Italian architect Enrico Fratesi, is a compact couch that happens to have a poetic streak. For those who are not familiar with the term 'haiku,' it is a traditional form of Japanese poetry characterized by short and simple lines that can nevertheless be highly evocative. Haiku by GamFratesi visualizes the poem in a way that is at once beautiful and functional.
Created for manufacturer Fredericia Furniture, Haiku by GamFratesi provides soft intimacy in a rigid form. Subtly curvaceous, it loosely embraces the sitter for comfort and privacy. More than that, the sofa is "intended as a sensory image to suggest an emotion," according to the designers.
