Lebanese designer Khaled El Mays has designed the Transformers collection, featuring a handmade sofa and armchairs that look like they could stand up and unfurl into giant creatures.
The collection is partly informed by the famous Japanese-American franchise of the same name, where humanoid autonomous robots transform into cars, trucks, and other machines.
His sofa and pair of armchairs are made of bulbous, overstuffed cushions, sometimes joined at sharp angles evocative of the bent limbs of a crouched figure. The pieces appear to lean forward, as if already in a state of transformation.
