Loope Lupita: A Twist on Modern Seating

Care for a twist with that?Care for a twist with that?

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.

The Lupita can be purchased by contacting the designer.

I'd rock in it too.

Lovely idea:) If only it was made out of recycled parts.
