Richard Clarkson wanted to create a sort of low-tech, basket-style sofa where you can curl up and forget the everyday worries of ordinary life… and maybe even doze off before slowly falling asleep. There is no art or craftsmanship in this object, there is no science that has studied its design. In particular, research in autistic children and those suffering from RMD (rhythmic movement disorder) has played a crucial role in the shape and structure of the outcome. For all its theoretical complexity, the final form
seems quite simple and extremely comfortable. A rough wooden curved, padded and cushioned by a series of pillows without cover. Cede forward thanks to the weight of the timber when not busy, then rises again, of course, when someone sits in it.
