Creating a Gathering Place

Joseph Walsh and Phillippe Hetier agree that a seating arrangement is essentially a gathering place in its own right. They collaborated to create a seating arrangement that expresses this belief.

“The piece should be a curve around a centre point, a gathering place. It seems like the most natural thing and something we have created in our built environments throughout history.” The Dia Sofa is as much a place as it is an object. The result of a conversation between friends, it is to encourage that again for those who sit on it, into it, and sit amongst it.
