Paul Carluy – Waspy Stoner Couch
Diploma project by Paul Carluy
“I want the most comfortable stoner couch.” Eli asked me to create a stoner couch for his brand ERL. I chose to break down this bulky and all too often opaque object. Layers of covering are added on a tubular steel structure. The sofa is thus superimposed with different textiles, materials and volumes as if it were clothing. In the summer, a single thin layer is sufficient, while in the winter, you put on your puffy jacket. With each new layer, there is a new object. You can go from a Butterfly lounger to an upholstered armchair that you can sink into. The choice of covering can be both functional and stylistic.
