Milan Design Week 2015. French designer Matali Crasset created Self made seat sofa for Italian brand Campeggi. The modular couch is composed of individual elements that can be arranged in many solutions.
Matali Crasset says: “Self-made seat was born to prevent the sofa from monopolising the living space of our habitat”.
Each single piece can be used or stacked as a pouf but also grouped with other ones to create single armchairs and smaller couches. The upholstered modules come two sizes: the larger ones for the back and the seats, the smaller ones for the armrests.

The light-havana colour of the elements contrasts with an orange fluo fabric that strips all around the rounded volumes. The belt is stitched to the module and creates a practical handle on the curved top that allows to move the piece around. Self made seat sofa doesn’t have any frame or base to hold all the pieces together and it must be leaned against a wall.
The project rediscovers a typology presented in 1998. “The seat transforms, belonging to the number of people and the day times, inviting to modulate space as needed; adapting more and more to our tastes and our desires” Says Matali Crasset.
