How changes in society could affect established furniture typologies?Commissioned by Vitra on the occasion of Milan Design Week, The Communal Sofa is a piece of video art made in collaboration with British artist Samuel Fouracre and designer Robert Stadler. Various designers – including Konstantin Grcic, Barber and Osgerby, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and Commonplace Studio – were invited to develop ideas for this collective living space.
