This project succeeds the material library of carbon fiber composite while taking a step toward a more high-end, aesthetic-oriented furniture design. PeacockSofa is composed of two modules: a soft woven cushion and a rigid one-piece frame. The frames are fabricated in one piece with some levels of modularity and connected by a single hoop for structure-enhance purpose. End-users can manipulate their unique PeacockSofa through various parameters, such as pedal amounts, intervals, length of legs, and many more.
