Mugrosita by Liliana Ovalle

Mexican designer Liliana Ovalle has designed a sofa based on the improvised furniture of the homeless in Mexico City. 

Called Mugrosita, the chair consists of a metal frame with wooden slats, to which beanbags and blankets can be knotted.

The armchair uses the same system developed for Mugroso Couch, where basic structures and random elements are held together with bean bags and ropes, using the knot as a connecting system. The object grows in an intuitive way, sometimes questioning a logical order, just as they naturally appear in the urban landscapes of Mexico City. In this version a new element is added: a metallic grid, an object widely used by street vendors to display their merchandise, accompanied with  tangled bags, old tape and more.
