Faux Ostrich & Crocodile Leather cushions (sold individually)
Art meets function in this sculptural cushion set. A floor cushion with a twist, Wisada, utterly unique in its concept and aesthetic, encourages socializing in a traditional, yet contemporary environment. Wisada is a hybrid piece of furniture that exemplifies the difference between Eastern and Western traditions.
Wisada encourages people to interact with each other through an interactive experience, and is the first product to introduce the bicycle seat inside the home for both men and women. It is in turn breaking cultural boundaries with its though-provoking concept.
This astonishing and inspirational collection rises just before the spring when both the ostrich and crocodile are in their breeding season. After the success of the Wisada Winter ’15 collection, animal skins, understanding animals further and the behavior of these living creatures inspired Ayah. For crocodiles, the breeding season is typically mid-winter; meaning the birth of their offspring is in March. For Ostriches, their breeding season runs at various times depending on the hemisphere in which they are located. Having researched the attitude of various reproduction timings, L’Esotico celebrates both the end and the beginning of the procreation cycles, introduction a new generation into the world.
