As mentioned in the brief description, in the first version of the sofa, only visual beauty and creating an attractive and beautiful form was considered, which was inspired by duck fingers, and in the second and last version, which you see by making changes in that form. Rich, it can be made using natural and low-loss materials. Also, another point of this beautiful shape is its natural nature, which is taken from a duck and has many similarities with green and public spaces, and induces a good feeling in the eyes of the audience.

  • I was sketching, I remembered the duck I had as a child, I called it Bad Bad. I always paid attention to the shape of his fingers, especially his curvature and the veil between them and this attracted me to design an organic form inspired by the shape of duck fingers... .
    I called him a Bad Boy.
    I hope you have a good time on my sofa.
