Welcome to the Jungle is the name of the furniture collection, designed by Rui Alves, force behind My Own Superstudio. It is comprised of five pieces that can be stacked in many different ways, creating shelving, seating, multilevel console/occasional tables and even coat hangers. I love the colorful fun the line projects. Little columns on the side of each piece really do add animal resemblance, something kinds of all ages will appreciate.

What is a sofa but a pile of pillows? This rhetorical question was a starting point in creation of this piece. The Brick sofa was designed by KiBiSi for Versus. The inspiration for it came from a brick bond, the pattern of which was replicated by cushions. When KiBiSi partner Bjarke Ingels tried to find a sofa with strong architectural references for his own apartment – the idea for the piece was born. The cushions are made from polyurethane foam and held together by tailor quality buttons.

This multifunctional table, designed by Italian studio Crop, consists of two parts – wooden tray and upholstered cubes. The cubes can be used as ottomans and provide extra seating in a guest entertaining situation. They can also serve as freestanding side or end tables around the room. The design includes two sizes and two color palettes, warm and cool.
