Sweden-based Note Design Studio have created the Rise Sofa for Swedish furniture company Fogia. The sofa is composed of two parts, a wooden base and the cushion. The wooden base of the sofa extends outwards and becomes a side table.
From the designers, “Rise is a classic, elegant sofa with a strong individual expression. It carries the Scandinavian identity through its distinct base in wood, where the soft upholstered shape rests on top, with a characteristic tension in its high back. Its greatest advantage is how well it works in both public spaces as in a home.
The wrap- around back shields off a conversation in the sofa from an open floor plan in a typical office environment. Just as easily, it has a natural place in a home environment, where it it soft and inviting. It should be homely, friendly and welcoming. The integrated side table opens up and becomes a bridge between Rise and the rest of the room. A surface for a still life, a favorite book, plants or whatever you choose to have close at hand. Rise is a piece of furniture with warm design and modern lines.”
