Intriguing Furniture You Can Lean Against The Wall By YOY Design

As strange as it looks, the Canvas furniture, showcased at Milan Design Week 2013, is a real object and not a simple avant-garde painting with baroque details.

Imagine a site you might picture, when letting your mind wonder back in time: damp soil forms a soft ground, catching your footsteps, ancient, weather-beaten stairs, that have been used in earlier times as an earthen path, a lovely old retaining wall and carefully cherished plants. When we first set foot on this old soil in the city of Myoren-ji, we not merely got interested by this lush site, but rather fascinated by its’ overwhelming beauty, that laid in every single FIBRE.
