Tape, system by Benjamin Hubert, 2018.
The Tape sofa – the first modular sofa designed by LAYER – comprises a series of modernist building blocks that can be combined in various contrasting and complementary combinations to suit a diverse range of interior spaces and styles. Each modular block – seat, backrest, and arms – is subdivided into smaller textile panels which are bonded together using polyurethane tape. The technique was inspired by the sporting industry, where the tape is used in the construction of snowboarding, ski, and wet-weather gear. Pockets – which are connected to the arm modules using tape – can be used to gather and store papers, magazines, or remote controls.
