Furniture, like art practice, is capable of prompting creative expression.

Made of plywood and raw canvas, these basic building blocks in their neutral state allow infinite possibilities for creative intervention. Just as a painter might react to a blank canvas, the user can make their mark on the furnitire. Any intervention is welcome: painting, spilling, embroidery, patchwork, or cautious preservation.

The couch is not an artistic tool in the way an easel is, but is rather a prompt for new perspective, creativity, and play in the leisure setting. Functionally, the furniture enables this through the traditional workers stool situated in the center of the couch- creating new configurations to experience conversation, rest, or observation.
