Inspired by the quilted kimono bows (obis in Japanese), this new design by Rafa García for Sancal is an extraordinarily comfortable mattress like sofa. The back height and curved arms beckon you sink into a soft, quilted seat. To make the design feel lighter, Rafa has created some unique feet, available in ash, or, to really give a sensation of antigravity, transparent acrylic.
Obi is as practical as it is comfortable. It features an extensive array of different modules, including long angled pieces to make corner sofas and a 134cm chaise longue for extra depth.
"The relationship between a designer and his pieces is so close and special that they feel a part of him, it is for this reason the designer always gives his all when creating."
