The challenge was to create a series of furniture based on the properties of socks. Looking at a variety of foot-underwear with emphasis on functionality and social relevance, Papove isolated qualities that could be applied to furniture. The resulting collection consists of three pieces, each exhibiting a particular "sockyness" derived from a different quality possessed by socks.
The Five Toes Coffee Table takes inspiration from toe socks and is supported by five legs. This table is designed for assembly and disassembly using socks as fasteners. Since common socks are used as press-fit fasteners, the user has the ability to customize the appearance of the table with, plain, coloured, or mismatching socks. The tabletop surface is a material blend of cotton and a gypsum polymer resulting in a hard textured surface.
The Unify Sofa takes a more literal approach. This slipcover hides the individual chairs much like socks hide your individual toes. It takes inspiration from team uniforms and is physically and visually unifying to give new life to discarded chairs.
