Canvas Seating- A Mind Blowing Award Winning Design by YOY
A Tokyo-based design studio YOY, founded by Naoki Ono and Yuki Yamamoto, have drawn a lot of attention with their extraordinary design named “Canvas” on the design scene since Innermost launched the product in Autumn 2013. Canvas has been exhibited at some of the industry’s most relevant trade fairs including Maison et Objet in Paris, Light+Building in Frankfurt, Design Junction and Salone Satellite in Milan, ICFF in New York, not to mention other fairs. Canvas gives a false appearance of a 2- dimensional flat image leaning against a wall but serves as a seating, leaving a surreal impression of sitting on a flat image. The frame is made of wood and aluminium and covered with an elastic fabric that can withstand the weight of a person. This clever design could become a highly useful feature in space-deprived interiors. Canvas Seating won The Design For Asia Award in 2014.
