A chance to see nature from a different perspective and rise above the stress of urban areas.

Instead of reaching for cloud nine, why not ground yourself closer to earth and experience the same level of serenity? Japanese design studio Hidemi Nishida installed five white sofas on the rolling hills of Mount Rokko, Japan to let people embrace the beauty of the natural scenery. From the comfy couches, scenic admirers can soak in the warmth of the sun, appreciate the dazzling waters in front of them, and just fall back in love with nature once more.

Each sofa-highchair comes with a ladder or stairs to reach to the “sky” seat. These floating pieces of furniture are tucked amongst the surrounding trees, and offer viewers a mesmerizing experience of sitting in the sky. The project is part of the Rokko Meets Art 2013, which is an annual event dedicated to environmental art.
