[WORLDKINGS - Ideastime] Daily Highlights 23 May 2023 – Floating Furniture Transforms For Safety To Buoy With Rising Sea Levels


(Wcsa.wrold) A one-of-a-kind sofa and ottoman, called Bliss, imagines the day when floating furniture becomes essential for homeowners to keep afloat amid rising sea levels.



Designed by global creative company Mother, Bliss is a handcrafted, functional piece and art statement whose purpose is demonstrated in its striking appearance.

This water-resistant sofa set, decked out in life jacket orange and standing on pinewood legs, is built in with a paddle attachment, rocket flare, and emergency strobe. Stashed in its ottoman is a user’s manual, sunscreen, and even a martini mixology kit with a serving of olives. All these features aim to help the user ebb and flow with their life at sea.



Importantly, the couch has a sea level indicator that, upon rising to the ‘critical’ mark due to dangerously high tides, prompts the furniture to “[transition] seamlessly from an attractive sofa to a safety raft, ready to whisk you away."

The Bliss sofa and ottoman set is priced at a lofty US$100,000.
