'Beddo' by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm

This minimalst sofa was designed by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm and is currently displayed at the exhibition ‘Designers Investigating’ in Øksnehallen in Copenhagen. ‘Beddo’ – Japanese for ‘bed’ – is composed of a thin upholstered plane in floor height and a wooden structure for the removable backrest. It was not the young Danish designer’s intention to create a comfy and soft sofa, but rather a simple resting place, which still requires some physical activity – since the lack of corporal motion is one reason for an increasing number of people with back- and joint pain.
