Presented at the Stockholm Furniture Fair last month, Greiling’s 2009 Bidoun Sofa series is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional seating used by the Bedouin culture. Their nomadic lifestyle,  which necessitates ease in assembly and transport, aided in the inspiration of the design and pairs with the colorful combination of textiles and patterns, typical of the Arabic aesthetic. The rope-bound construction adds the finishing touch, demonstrating both a cultural significance and an approachable hands-on feel. The mattress pads are interchangeable and can be combined to create a number of different inventions.
