By studying people who are leaning, forms are created between the wall and the body. The composition of the furniture is based on these shapes. The WallCouch enhance an existing way of using the body and rewards it. It has no attached norms or guidelines on how to use or not use. This gives a freedom to the interaction and invite the body to use the furniture in different ways. Sitting on the floor and leaning, stand on your hands, run into it or lean with your whole body. The cushions in different sizes and forms also has variations in depth making it possible to have a dynamic interaction. Different bodies will have different experiences. My intention is to give a new freedom on how to use the body’s sense of touch and create alternatives to the routine movements we do in our homes and spaces.
This project was the starting point of the new version Lean-In produced by Materia AB.
