Plenty of furniture items are named after places: usually, the name has been picked out of an atlas at random. The Sofa4Manhattan was actually designed by Manhattan residents in a series of “crowdcrafting” workshops open to all.
There are several different configurations of the basic style, all designed with city residents in mind.
All designed feature a wooden baseboard which extends at the side to hold a drink or narrow tray – living in some of the most valuable real-estate in the world, who has enough space for a separate coffee table?
Some designs feature an exaggerated high back, ideal to act as a room divider in an open-plan studio apartment.
