Couch-Potato / Sofa


In developing countries the technology is so quickly advancing these days that products become outdated so rapidly. But whole product is not outdated but a few components in it. In Germany, the old awnings are thrown away as bulky wastes. The purpose of this product is to return the old awning back to the life cycle and use them again. Couch-Potato is a kind of double sided sofa in two different sizes which is inspired by the shape of a bean bag which is made of used awning fabrics and filled by bean bag fillings. Couch-Potato can be used in public places like beach bars or waitnig rooms.
