Hollowed Storage Seating

The Paciocco Chair by Punto Soave Embodies the Comfort of Hammocks

— March 29, 2013 — Art & Design
The Paciocco Chair is a comfy piece of furniture that doubles as a handy storage space. Perfect for small living areas that require all the hidden nooks and crannies it can get, the Paciocco Chair may provide a lot of function, but it concentrates heavily on form as well. In a way, people might simply be enamored with how it displays objects such as books and art work in a novel way.

Designed by Punto Soave, a freelance designer based in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, the Paciocco Chair it made out of solid ash wood. Constructed completely without screws, nails or glue, it is an easy-to-assemble seat that is still much more exciting than an Ikea option. The Paciocco Chair boasts a suspended seat that mimics the thrill of lying in a hammock.
Trend Themes
1. Multi-functional Furniture - The trend towards furniture that serves multiple purposes like seating with storage space is an opportunity for innovators to create unique designs that can optimize small living areas.
2. Minimalist Design - A trend in furniture design towards minimalism and simplicity means innovators could develop products with less material that still provide the same level of utility, like the Paciocco Chair by Punto Soave.
3. Sustainable Materials - The use of sustainable materials in furniture design is a growing trend that could provide opportunities for innovators to create eco-friendly designs like the Paciocco Chair which is made entirely of solid ash wood.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture Manufacturing - The furniture manufacturing industry could capitalize on the trend towards multi-functional seating designs to appeal to consumers who live in small living areas.
2. Interior Design - Interior designers could leverage the minimalist design trend in furniture manufacturing to design spaces that maximize space utilization while still being aesthetically pleasing.
3. Eco-friendly Manufacturing - An industry trend towards using sustainable materials in furniture manufacturing means that eco-friendly manufacturers could create designs similar to the Paciocco Chair by Punto Soave to appeal to environmentally conscious consumers.
