presented at salone satellite during milan design week 2013, japanese design studio YOY have developed ‘canvas’, a series of two-dimensional hanging furniture pieces. constructed out of wood and and aluminum, the volume is covered by an elastic fabric – screen-printed with drawings of different types of furniture. The piece works when the frame is leaned against a wall, stretching when weight is applied – accommodating the user within the newly formed void. Available in three different sizes, the hanging seats come in stool, love seat and sofa variations.
