Lost in Sofa, by Japanese designer Daisuke Motogi, is a piece of furniture with deliberate gaps in the upholstery, intended to be used for storage of books and other items.

That’s just going to capture even more crap.
It’s a cute idea for anyone without kids under 10, unless you want the entire content of your pantry in the couch.
After a while, I think this would become uncomfortable to sit on? If I want storage I’ll buy a shelf – I really don’t want anyone stuffing things into the couch.
This looks like a great way to store and organize all of my crumbs and cat hair! :D
Looks like someone beat me in making a crumb catching comment. But I will be the first to make note that in the winter it’s always harder to find something because you have ‘X’ extra pockets. With this you’ll be spending hours trying to find where you put the remote. Creative, though.
$9500? For that price it had better be totally reconfigurable.
Like into a working station wagon.
I guess it’s in Hong Kong Dollar coz I find this on the shop page, “All prices shown on huzidesign.com are in $ HKD.“
Yeah, unless it like snaps off and you can shake out all the cracks, this thing is the Sarlac of potato chips.
Why not modular furniture made with cubes that attach to each other with velcro/Molle-type attachment anchoring/magnets?
Would cardboard cubes suffice? http://www.bloxes.com/
If they can withstand the weight of an average human over time and are actually comfortable to sit on, Maybe.
Dunno about durability over time, but for comfort there are pillows ;)
I look forward to seeing the inevitable Itteh Bitteh Sofa Crack Committeh.
If you were the sort of person who could make this sofa organize your crap instead of becoming the craptastic center of your house full-o-crap then you wouldn’t need this sofa because you’d never lose crap in your sofa :/
It would be helpful if the sofa came with a length of rope to “floss” the gaps clean.
i can hear the ilomilo soundtrack in my head while i watch this.
you know what, my kids would love to insert their drawings into it!
I’m guessing Mr. Motogi slept through the lesson on ergonomics. Well, at least unwelcome visitors won’t be staying long.
