As an image deeply rooted in the Chinese culture, Buddha stands for the longing of inclusiveness and auspiciousness of the Chinese people. Such a traditional element is applied to the design of modern furniture for large-scale production and trade with a vision of rejuvenating and innovating the traditional culture.
Buddha Sofa was invited to Milan Design Week in 2018. The designer realizes “inviting the Buddha to your home” as a daily essential. While performing the basic functions of a sofa, it satisfies the sensational pursuit of inner peace and zen.
Though the overall shape of Buddha Sofa resembles the typical scene of the Buddha sitting on the lotus base, we have minimized the specific images and strengthened the abstract expression in design to make it more compatible.
