Au Bovinae

This design is an ethically sourced sofa. Using natural and sustainable materials I was able to create seating that feels comfortable for both the body and mind. The organic curves help this effect and show truth in the materials. Bringing this design into CAD software and building a scale model allowed me to demonstrate that the sofa would be feasibly handcrafted and ergonomically fitting. One can evevn choose to have their sofa outfitted with a pull out storage unit coming from underfoot.

Why Au Bovinae?

I grew up driving my grandfather’s 2000 Ford Taurus. It was white as paper. The older style Taurus was so completely oval. The radio, the handles, the everything… oval. At first I thought it was strange, but the style quickly grew on me. Now, I miss driving that thing and question why so many current models have the same style as the next one. The retro feel from the Taurus and the elegance of Jean Roy√®re’s couch “Ours Polaire,” were main inspirations for this project. The bovine theme and French influence are the reasons behind the name, “Au Bovinae.”

A quick study of the current trends in homegoods at the time. While a nice referance, heirloom quality furniture must have a timeless style.
