 In their Passions-wege project the two young designers mathak+mahlknecht are departing a long way from the conventional sofa or chair on four feet.

Instead of thinking about sitting, they reflect on being settled, on what it means in reality to occupy a place and design it according to one’s own needs. Their object made of variable upholstery elements is not only a seating and reclining landscape in form, but also alludes in its aesthetics and colour-play to the image of a (cultivated) landscape.
