Yuku

by Setsu and Shinobu Ito

Yuku, which in Japanese means “going forward”, is a narrow sofa created to develop linearly along varying curved paths, in a continuous and infinite progression that overcomes any obstacle and explores new areas and view points. Its light silhouette with understated metal legs does not intrude the space but, rather, is like a floating structure that identifies possible paths adapting to various configurations of the environment. The design includes a double shelved unit that can be added as a cantilever to the end of the sofa. The stretch fabric covering the upholstery contributes to the contemporary style that distinguishes this sofa.
