Loope Lupita: A Twist on Modern Seating
The latest concepts in on-floor seating have quite literally taken a turn. The Loope Lupita, designed by twenty-one year old Victor Aleman, reminds me of a cross between some kind of fruit peel remnant and a mini racetrack my brother used to have (a Scalextric, I believe it's called?).
This unique seating arrangement is constructed from a single piece of red oak, cushioned with pleather-covered, high-density foam. The possibilities are great for modular combinations -- side-by-side and end-to-end offer some interesting options, but I'm sure you could transform your living room into a veritable jungle gym of loopitas, limited only by your imagination (and funds, perhaps).
Organic in feel while still sleek and modern, my guess is that these high-class curlicues are not only stylish but also ridiculously comfortable, if not the best for encouraging good posture.
I personally would like to flip it upside down and turn it into a new-fangled rocking chair, but with my luck I'd rock right on out the window, quickly putting an end to all loopy fun.
