The Soft Wood Sofa from Moroso is a master of optical illusions: it looks like a wooden bench, but it truly is upholstered and the wooden look only is refined clothing.
The Swedish design team Front designed the Soft Wood. Its name is programme: Soft Wood looks like a rustic wooden bench on the first sight thanks to its natural wood grain. At detailed watching or even touching the illusion gets revealed, because the Soft Wood is a comfortable sofa.
The cushioning of the Soft Wood appears in a realistic wood optic and its form was also a copy of a conventional wooden bench. With Soft Wood from Moroso the designers from Front experimented the difference between visual and tactile furniture characteristics. The result of this work is a surprising sofa with visual and functional style, which causes a sensation with its inspired design.
