Piero’s Proses: Part 2 of 7: Interface

“My sofas are uncomfortable. I design them to be uncomfortable.”

You get strong feedback from my couches. To continuously use. It’s like the computer. Without using the computer, it is just a brick. With my couches you continously interface with them. The user is modifying their body every two or three minutes.

I love the google ad for this post: Couches Quality affordable furniture that give your home a personal touch! What would Piero Lissoni’s google ad for couches say?

maybe people who don’t like company would want uncomfortable couches. so that no one would want to visit, because there’s nowhere nice to sit and talk.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
