The Hanabi Sofa by Yuki Abe, an industrial designer hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, is an explosion of comfort. The name of the couch comes from the Japanese language and translates to 'fireworks.' The way the cluster of cushions flare outwards does bring to mind these festive nighttime performances. Although it would seem to make it impossible to sit in cozily, it simply provides a more snug place to relax.

Created for Vivero, the Hanabi Sofa by Yuki Abe could also be likened to a flower. Filled with polystyrene beads, the cushions mold to the sitters body effortlessly. Available in two- and one-seater options, the couch rests either on a powder-coated or chrome-plated steel base. It is also available in a variety of colors, which can be mixed and matched according to desires.
