The Pinsofa is a life-sized interpretation of a pin cushion. The playful piece of furniture refers to one’s inner childlike qualities through the manipulation of scale. The work is based on the idea that enlarged objects have the ability to generate the feeling of being small, to re-imagine the world from a different perspective. Treating the sofa as an abstract piece, the textile and wooden needles serve as its main structural supports.
“Walking through the studio with beautiful sunshine coming through the windows, I discovered a new beauty in the needles sticking out of my needle pillows. This was my very first impression - I told myself this was so inspiring that I should be working with it.”
