Divide, by Nolen Niu, has always been on my list of designs I wanted to talk about. Everything about Divide I find appealing; its sharp contrasts, edgy form, and simplistic aesthetic all lend to the typical beauty of minimalistic modernism.
Divide can come either in an armchair or a sofa. Due to the product’s exclusivity, users can customize the chair rather extensively. There is a decent selection of Maharam Hallingdal colors and ELMO leathers to choose from. The two-tone white/black would definitely be my choose, which is surprising for me because, when there are multiple equally awesome variations, I usually have to go through an internal war before picking the right option.
The separation between the backrest and seat is to eliminate fabric tension typical of one-piece sofas This allows the seat to perform as an independent cushion for added comfort. The gap also eliminates the need flipping up seat cushions revealing, mystery items. Loose change are in plain view and cleaning is simplified with the use of a narrow nozzle vacuum attachment.
