Japanese studio hamanishi design introduced the blanco sofa, which redesigns the classic seat into a simplistic folded sofa. It is comprised only of a metal frame and some cushions, all fastened together by a belt. Differentiating itself from the traditional sofa, hamanishi design's blanco is compact and portable; it seats two and draws inspiration from a deckchair and blends into any contemporary living space.

The design is set on a minimal tubular frame and the cushions wrap around it to be further secured with leather belts on both ends of the seat. The color palette is predominantly mint green throughout the frame and cushions, whereas the leather belts are a tan hue. The upholstery is much like velvet and hangs over the frame's base. The blanco sofa is available as a flat-pack design and is constructed for easy storage and portability. Photo Credits: designboom, hamanishi.net
