Concrete Never Looked This Light or Comfy
March 10th, 2012
I tried lying down on the concrete road once for a school project, and let me just say that my back was sore for close to a week afterwards. Obviously concrete isn’t made for comfort; it’s made to be strong and hard and long-lasting so we don’t end up with horribly cracked roads and structures.
With the exception of these Concrete Cushions by Torafu Architects, that is. These cushions are part of the design studio’s “Soft Block” series that offers a solution for modular, re-arrangable furniture.
Each of the faux concrete blocks feature varying and diverse designs that come together wonderfully when they’re stacked or placed side-by-side. Make a chair, put together a sofa, or lay everything down flat on the floor to come up with a mattress.
The cushions are extra cushy and comfortable since they use cushy, but supportive Fine Revo foam material by Asleep.
Now I’d lie down any day on this kind of concrete.
