With someone with a hammer, everything looks like a nail, so we suppose it’s normal that having spent the best part of our lives gaming, Tetris was the first thing we thought of when we set eyes on the Slot Sofa. A handmade creation by Matthew Pawk, pictures of its existence first surfaced a year ago. But the Internet being what it is, they’re going viral again lately, and we’ve just noticed the item.
Slot is a dynamic furniture piece. The sofa system finds new value and diverse functionality by blending the sofa, coffee table, and ottoman. It utilizes the common constructional gaps found between the cushions of the sofa by converting them into tracks for which the table can slide in and out. When slotted, the table acts as a console. When freed, it acts as a coffee table. The magnetically retained sofa cushions always find and keep their optimal position either atop the table for an ottoman or below for a coffee table. Slot features traditional construction with textile upholstery and finished bent plywood
In the passing months the prototype doesn’t seem to have materialized into something you can purchase. So it’s nice to know it exists, but it sort of sucks we can’t buy it.
