East meets West


'East meets West' by Tonio de Roover is a sofa that invites people together to sit, talk or read.
In visual sense, 'East meets West' a sculptural object, an item that refers to a flying carpet that want to rise from the earth. It is reminiscent of the 'tales of a thousand and One Nights', thus heralding a connection with non-Western cultures. The simplicity of the shape and the materials used to emphasise this image.

This is really interesting!

I believe it will create an exciting reaction from people. And this is the essence of design, to be able to engage your audience with your creation.
