A Foam-Wrapped Sofa’s Lesson in Problem Solving

We can only imagine the process of making this strangely-compelling foam-wrapped sofa…that there could have been no way to plan it completely, but rather, follow the steps to making it as they became clear. That made us think of British architect Richard MacCormac’s insight:

“I don’t think you can design anything just by absorbing information and then hoping to synthesise it into a solution.

What you need to know about the problem only becomes apparent as you’re trying to solve it.”
