Italian-born Philippe Nigro's innovative creation, called 'Confluences' employs counterforms in an overlapping arrangement of furniture elements that works like a puzzle to make multiple configurations from a few basic pieces. The varying seat heights and seat depths allow for a variety of sitting positions and comfort choices including foam density choices.

The Philippe Nigro Confluences design is produced and sold by by Ligne Roset at retail outlets, including their own, worldwide.

Implications - Consumers often buy eclectic furniture because they feel the uniqueness of an item adds intrinsic value to a product. Corporations looking to raise the price of their goods may consider creating objects with idiosyncratic designs as consumers are willing to pay higher prices on exclusive goods.
