Vincent Reardon - Slot Sofa Prototype

In May 2007, furniture and product designers Matt Pauk and Rob Tang of Vincent Reardon showcased their Slot Sofa design at the ICFF in New York. They turned to Walter Heller to build the prototype for this unique sofa system.

Says Matt and Rob "Slot is a dynamic furniture piece which finds new value by the blending of a sofa and coffee table. The system makes use of the traditional gaps found between sofa cushions by converting them into tracks for the table to slide into".

Learn more about the design process, including sketches and 3-d renderings here.
