German designer Karl Frederik Scholz joined Israeli Michal Blutrich to create Pile, a stackable space-saving furniture system for relaxation and conversation right on the floor. Perfect for small apartments, the collection features different shaped and colored items that can be arranged into various horizontal, vertical or compact combinations. Pile also has seat cushions, a table, and a lamp that adapt to different needs and put a multi-hued, sculptural twist on traditional Japanese tatami mats.
Pile takes into account that a large percentage of the world lives in overcrowded cities with limited space. It consists of 16 blue-hued square cushions, four round white ones, a double-top table and a lean lamp.
The hand-made table is geometrically pierced right to the bottom, allowing creative users to place a flower vase, bottle of wine, or the thin lamp right through the center.
Made from a hollow wooden base, the lamp can be tilted in three different positions thanks to its faceted design. Its long metallic body ends in a row of LED lights, perfect for reading a book or make any space nice and bright.
The cushions measure 1.6 square feet and are made of a high-density foam core wrapped in colored textiles and an anti-slip bottom. Built on the principle of stacking, the soft squares can be arranged as a sculptural sofa, used on their own as pillows, or just simply placed down on the floor. What makes Pile great for those who live in cramped quarters is that when not in use, all items can be easily stacked in an empty corner or closet until a new occasion calls for a space to meet, relax and enjoy life on the ground.
