Olivia from Marseille discussing her daybed
“I can get truly creative when I’m daydreaming on my daybed.”
We visit Olivia in her studio. The sculptor has settled in Marseille. “For me, this place is like a stone. It changes slowly over time and has to work on its future. I work with stone in the exact same way. That’s why I like it here,” explains the short, lean individual as she sits down on her daybed from Cubit. She takes her sandals off and crosses her legs.
The daybed offers immediate rest and recuperation with a long-lasting effect.
Just like one of her objects, the versatile piece of seating furniture takes pride of place in the room, which is flooded with light. Whether you call it an ottoman, daybed or chaise-longue, the lounger with one or two arm rests at the side is quickly becoming a firm favorite among creative spirits and design fans. It’s less like a sofa and more like an armchair. It’s a piece of furniture for dynamic individuals looking for somewhere that they can briefly rest and recuperate.

The modular sofa system from Cubit has therefore consciously created seating elements with perfect dimensions for a daybed. They’re narrow, long and tall. A seating cushion can be complemented by adding an arm rest on the narrow side, with the height being determined by users’ personal preferences. From low to distinctively high, an ottoman à la Cubit® is the starting point for a multitude of possibilities. If you’re keen to make the most of the modularity offered by the sofa system, why not design your daybed using an elongated seating element and an armchair? It can have one arm rest or two, arranged in a corner formation. Combined with the seating element, it creates a wonderful chaise-longue.

“With Cubit, I’ve found a furniture system that means I have the benefits of an ottoman and enjoy the impressive impact of puristic design,” smiles the designer. In addition to the fact that the sofa system is simple to covert, Olivia values the material quality, as the furniture elements are extremely stable given that they could well be constantly rearranged. The high-quality foams that the elements are made of are so indulgent that you end up sitting comfortably and attentively at the same time. Simply put, a canapé couldn’t have been designed in a better way…
