Where form meets function

When Gustav Segerstéen envisioned his “Take on Nature” sofa, he imagined the unity that occurs between two people when they start living together or get married. The separate parties usually merge their “stuff”, exemplifying the “two become one” concept associated with couples or spouses. Segerstéen materialized this concept with his “Take on Nature Sofa,” which comes from the idea of two chairs becoming one sofa.

““I wanted the sofa to look unfinished and chose a stage where it would look the most interesting,” Segerstéen tells Co.Design. “I imagine it growing into a more common-looking sofa, with another chair growing as a new family member arrives.”

The designer also included a drink tray on one of the armrests, and a reading light, with the electrical cord winding extending over the back of the sofa.
