Stéphanie Marin‘s Les Angles is a set of oversized floor cushions that can be arranged to form a faceted landscape within the home. The furniture collection was designed as part of Marin’s brand Smaring and consists of oversized shapes that work as both a seating area and decorative living space. It’s composed of eight elements interconnected by a lacing technique to form a flexible pavement able to cover the floor, ceiling, or walls. And it’s perfect for drafty or noisy NYC apartments, as the pieces have insulating and acoustic properties.

The work of English mathematical physicist and philosopher of science Roger Penrose inspired Nice-based Stéphanie on the creation of Les Angles. Its eight different elements fit together to form a pavement inspired by mathematic tiles. Each element uses two sorts of diamonds for the base. The resulting shapes lack symmetry, forming an organic landscape. The collection comes in different colors and can be used for either private or commercial spaces.

If you like the concept of Les Angles, check out Marin’s previous work Livingstones, a similar, surreal landscape crafted from oversized grey wool pebbles. Or you can check her complete works on her website, here.
