The Lawless Sofa, made by Detroit-based furniture designer Evan Fay, consists of a steel pipe grid interwoven with exuberant foam tubes upholstered in stretch fabric. The juxtaposition of the steel grid and the randomly woven foam offers a playful exploration of how chaos and structure can coexist in society and living rooms alike. Tactile, exaggerated, and altogether unconventional, this sofa is a statement piece that is both comfortable and inspiring.
