This Multifunctional Sofa Is Truly the Furniture of the Future

Forget never leaving the apartment; how about never leaving the couch? This concept sofa by Milan-based Burak Kocak has features enough to mean that you could sit at it for days on end.

Called Herb, the comfortable seating of the sofa is straddled by a storage shelves on one side and a table on the other, which even holds a plant. Elsewhere, the sofa hooks up the mains to power an overhead light and provide a convenient power point for your cellphone or laptop.

That sofa space is clearly long enough to sleep on, and the storage shelves could handle a few days of snack and supplies. Which makes us wonder: what was the exact motivation for including a plant pot at one end, hmmm?

It's currently unclear if Herb will go into production, but we sure hope it does. [Burak Kocak via Design Milk]
