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.
