The furniture-media mashup

Entertainment should be fused into more pieces like the 'Music Sofa'

Yanko Design

If the furniture industry wised up, it would start designing a slew of lines with embedded media technologies. The combination of smaller devices and wireless connections could make entertainment options as common as choices of color and upholstery. And like any other quality product, aesthetics don't have to be sacrificed in the process.

The "Music Sofa" by designer Giongkun Wuqiongkun (conventional spelling) proves this point. The piece is beautifully done and fully functional with a built-in CD player and wireless speakers that can stream MP3 audio from an audio system within range, according to Yanko Design. And its open-air design provides the perfect counterpoint to the arch-villain look of the "Sonic Chair Boom Box."
