The outdoor space should be enjoyed with the people we love. The VIVI Sofa is a piece of furniture that tries to invite people to sit together and focus on the interaction between people. Foods always bring people together, so that I will design my sofa with a side table within reach. Thus, people can sit together and enjoy their meal and drinks in the indoor and outdoor space.

The whole frame is made from 3/4 inch thick aluminum tube and is finished with matte white powder coating. There is an "X" shape working as a suspension to hold the aluminum sheet and the bolster. The bolster is made of water-resistant linen with fast-dry foam and polyester fiber inside it.
