I really didn’t understand why the designer of this thing decided to call it the U-Turn Sofa since it neither offers a turn-about nor does it look like a u-turn symbol! I guess its just one of those marketing tricks to lure people into purchasing things more on hype than on merit. Which is actually quite sad because I think that this gorgeous seat created by Geir Sætveit for Martela has tremendous style potential of its own. The ergonomic design of this seat is very flattering as a standalone piece that can be freely combined with other furniture to create a dramatic effect in any living room or public space. At the extreme ends, the sofa allows users to use the back as armrest and sit facing backwards as well making it perfect for when you have a lot of people over for a party or get-together.
