The inspiration Sabu Studio found in Japanese Zen Gardens and moving water while designing Outside In is cleverly translated into the multifunctional piece. Aiming to redefine the way furniture can be used in different social situations and environments, Outside In encourages interaction between users and the various objects that sit on its rippled wood surface. The nested forms bring circular motion into the equation, allowing users to shift and reconfigure each component. The Outside In project also aims to bring a sense of the natural world indoors through form and symbolism, reconnecting us to our environment.
