El C39 is a pill-shaped sofa that will surprise you with its design and functionality.
Created by Canadian architect Yongwook Seong, takes up the bright colors of these capsules, which undoubtedly generate an immediate reaction.
Seong, who is interested in transgressive architecture, focuses on deconstructing the dualism or dichotomy in our way of life.
In this way, he created a space that, in addition to shining through its color and design, provides functionality and well-being.
To do this, Seong took the form of a partially cut pill, which allows one to observe the particles inside.
Made of post-consumer recycled fiber, they are soft enough to function as cushions and provide comfort to their users.
The project started in 2015 and concluded in 2017, allows that when a person sits or lies inside C 39 , they experience a partial encapsulation of the body, so they can physically interact with the particles inside.
Regarding the exterior design, the body of the capsule is made of semi-transparent polycarbonate and anodized aluminum.
A project that shows how the aesthetic value of a tablet can be translated into a functional seat.
But to achieve this, Yongwook Seong had to rise to the challenge of creating a seating shape that would maintain its visual integrity like a pill.
C39, besides being fun and colorful, was the winner in the furniture design category, 2016-2017, in the A'Design Award and Competition.
