In his psychedelic, postmodern approach to furniture, Bernard Govin breaks rules once believed to be sacrosanct in the design field. The pieces of his modular Asmara Sectional Sofa (1966) can be rearranged, making the couch uniquely flexible to fit nearly any space. The sofa encourages users to engage with its various forms, and to reimagine the ways in which spaces are defined by the objects and people within them. Govin’s designs recall the work of other inventive contemporaries such as Arne Jacobsen, Eero Saarinen, and Elizabeth Garouste and Mattia Bonetti.
