Looking like an enormous river rock or something that was removed from a giants gall bladder, the Koishi Pouf has a fantastically pleasing bio-organic shape. It was created by the award-winning Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa for Driade and is can easily suit many different  purposes any contemporary design.

Naoto Fukasawa has won over 50 international design awards for his singular style, a style that is not limited to modern home furnishings alone. He has cast is creative eye on almost every household item you can name from CD players and computer monitors to kitchen appliances and humidifier. Each design is amazing in its simplicity but few are as simple as his Koishi Pouf.

Although it is called a pouf, the Kioshi Pouf is as much of coffee table or organic sculpture as it is a footrest. It is larger than what I generally classify as a mere ottoman, standing 15″ high it has and irregular shape that is about 45″ long and 35″ wide. It is formed out of  painted fiberglass  and has a smooth, glossy finish that is available in shocking bright orange, sleek and minimalist white and a grayish blue color that looks like a stone that has been smoothed out by a mighty river. Appropriately, koishi is the Japanese word for pebble.

It makes a great place to kick up your feet in a contemporary seating arrangement but is large enough to easily double as a free-form coffee table. With its slick and curvaceous look, the Kioshi Pouf has the charisma and presence to be used all by itself as a free-standing bio-organic sculpture. I have seem it used very effectively this way several times and it has a uniquely dramatic effect that is natural and organic.

So if what you have in mind is a simple, organic and sculptural pouf or coffee table to complete the contemporary design of your modern home decor, the Kioshi Pouf from Driade may be the perfect piece for you. It is available from UnicaHome in all three colors for $1,539.00.
