Blockish Modular Furniture

ZIG for Cezign Looks Like Oversized Cushioned Building Blocks

— July 4, 2013 — Art & Design
ZIG for Cezign is a line of furniture that shows people such designs don't have to be slave to rigid forms. As modular as they come, the collection is comprised of long cushioned blocks that can be arranged and rearranged to address various needs. That could involve creating something familiar such as a couch or bed, or something more atypical like an abstract pile of long pillows.

Designed by Cecilia Dupire and Costa Picadas, ZIG for Cezign also offer similarly-shaped wood, glass and Plexiglas pieces that can form coffee tables and shelving. The cushioned ones, however, are available in a variety of colors, which can be mixed and matched. They also come with belts to better hold together.
