Abby is a sofa range with a generous proportion and a softly sculpted shape, which was developed for Bolia. We have made the armrests round and comfortably-shaped, so that they can work as well as a pillow for one to lie snugly and doze off on.

I was involved in the project from concept ideation, sketching, 3D CAD development and rendering, to preparing technical drawings for production.

We sought to simplify the seating components of the sofa into two main elements: the seat and armrest—which sweeps around to create a generous back cushion.

Details of the sofa base and legs were also explored to complement the rounded, organic shapes of the back and armrests.
