Boxy furniture



This furniture line by TAF architects kind of spoke to me when I saw it over at design*sponge: I'm lending out my graphic design services to Posten Norge at the moment (the Norwegian equivalent to Royal Mail). In their visual profile they use boxes on a grid system, so I guess you could say I'm thinking inside the box these days...

Anyway. This trompe l'oeil trend in furniture design seem to be spreading. It's fun to look at and there are some interesting ideas, but how practical and comfortable are the pieces, I wonder?

i'm not sure about these, especially since i have just moved house and am pretty sick of looking at boxes! x

Boxy, but nice. :-)

Nice color palette but would not lend comfort. Comfort is key for me!
