Socks + Furniture Collection by Greg Papove

Vancouver-based designer Greg Papove has created the Socks + Furniture collection. As the name suggests, the furniture collection is inspired by socks. The Socks + Furniture consists of a sofa, a table and a lighting fixtures. According to the designer, “An Exploration into the Banal Focusing on socks, this project is an example of how inspiration can come from anywhere if you challenge yourself not to overlook the mundane. It is about how even the most banal of objects can be shown in a different light. It is about taking what we can from traditionally stale objects to create new and thought provoking ones. This project is about taking one object and crashing it into another to see new possibilities in design. Exploring a sense of playfulness and the humour of socks, these objects are designed to generate thought about human-to-object interactions and the mundane encounters of daily life, which are often overlooked.”
