For the past week, the bubble couch recovered from the streets of New York has captured the attention of many users on TikTok. Amanda, also known as @yafavv.mandaa, the girl who shared the video on the Chinese social media platform, believes she has found the original version of a sofa produced by Roche Bobois and designed by Sacha Lakic. Amid memes and controversies, many Twitter users have questioned the authenticity of the sofa, but it’s worth discovering more about this highly original design piece.

Sacha Lakic designed the bubble couch in 2014. The sofa is recognizable for its soft lines and embracing shapes, three-dimensional upholstery, and vibrant colors. Lakic’s intention is to pay homage to natural forms in a hyper-technological way. That’s why the fabric used in the production of the bubble couch is stretchable in three directions and consists of a black jersey alongside a honeycomb knit wool.

The whole piece is quilted with a double-density polyurethane foam on the seat and backrest. The bubble couch fully embodies Lakic’s style – a passionate advocate of cutting-edge technologies – as he creates furniture and sofas for Roche Bobois with fluid lines that embody rigor and sensuality, rationality, and passion.

TReturning to @yafavv.mandaa, the creator not only managed to reach a staggering 65.5 million views on TikTok but also sparked a lively discussion on Twitter regarding those who are in favor or against stooping, the practice of retrieving abandoned furniture. There are those who fear bed bugs, while others normalize it as a way to give new life to furniture and home objects. Additionally, some have turned the blue couch into a hilarious trend.
