Oriental sofa

These days, The sofa has been in place of the critical space of communication
in the house. People have a rest with talking and watching TV together on the sofa.
Contrary to the West standing life, Oriental people is accustomed to sitting down
and living on the floor. Due to the large number of the family members in the East,
they sit on the floor as well as on a sofa. When they sitting on the floor, they usually
lean their body to the sofa pad.

Using this culture of Eastern, we designed a sofa with two back pads.
With this design, People could rest easily not only on the sofa also on the floor.
