Mercedes-Benz Create Their Own Furniture Collection
German engineering meets the living room.
Last year PSFK reported on a couple of examples of furniture drawing influence from the automotive world. There were designers exploring shapes and colors crossing over from cars. And a German manufacturer adapted a steel stamping process common to the auto industry to fabricate their chairs. Mercedes-Benz is looking to truly complete the circle by launching their own furniture collection. The line will debut next month at the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair. So far we have images of a sofa and table each featuring thinly shaped support legs.
