Life is Suite Inspired by a sofa discovered in the backstreets of Deptford. As a team, we imagined stories of its life so far and gave it a new lease of life. The upholstery has been designed in an interactive manner, lift cushions to explore its history and listen to sounds from within. A series of one-off pieces have been exhibited in The Royal Exchange, the Royal Festival hall, 100% Design, and has been published across the world, in print and blogs. http://www.lifeissuite.co.uk
