Canvas, the surreal design by YOY for Innermost, wins the Design For Asia Awards 2014 – Merit Recognition

YOY Design Studio’s show-stopping seating design for InnermostCanvas – has been awarded the Design For Asia Awards 2014Merit Recognition in recognition of its design excellence by the international judging panel. In honour of this achievement, it will be on display at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) along with other winners as part of the Innovation, Design & Technology or IDT Expo during the Business of Design Week (BODW).

Canvas is a surreal seating experience that takes the form of a 2-dimensional canvas measuring only 5cm in thickness. Bewildered customers are able to lounge effortlessly on this flat image leaning against a wall, made possible through a clever construction of structured fabrics hidden within. This contemporary piece of functional art is ideal for the modern yet space-deprived metropolitan home.

Since its launch by innermost in Autumn 2013, Canvas has exhibited in some of the industry’s most prominent trade fairs including Maison et Objet in Paris, Light+Building in Frankfurt, designjunction in Milan, ICFF in New York, and many more. YOY [joi] is a Tokyo based design studio composed of Naoki Ono, a spatial designer, and Yuki Yamamoto, a product designer. Started in 2011, their design theme is to create a new story between space and objects.
