After starting with nests, Hefer’s work evolved into animal-shaped forms that are playful and comfortable. The figures invite people to climb into the comfy seat through the wide open mouth of the beast. From toothy crocodiles to killer whales, tigers and toucans – the “Monstera Deliciosa” collection, along with other assorted creatures, is a menagerie of inviting, cheeky beasts. Despite the large teeth inside the gaping maw of these works, they are still comfortable nests, beckoning you to crawl in and curl up.
The role of an accent role in some cases is to become a visual focal point for the space and to direct the attention towards a particular spot. Sometimes that is ensured by a design that’s sculptural and just a little bit theatrical, like that of the Quinaquina chair. It’s a swivel chair with a circular wooden base and an octagonal body.
Represented in the United States by R & Company (and by the Southern Guild in South Africa) Hefer has recently gained much attention with his works at major design events like the London Design Biennale and Design Miami. His creative work started with woven nests, inspired by the indigenous weaver bird, which is known for its skill in crafting nests from whatever materials it can find.
2. Incorporate the sofa or sectional in circular groupings. You could have two–curved sofas "facing" each other with a round coffee table in between. To make the shape look less tricky, place the sofas at the center of the area. A curved sofa together with two chairs are just what you need to "produce" a cozy sitting nook. Two-curved sofa could flank the "fireplace", establishing a separate zone.
