Robert Pattinson on designing the dream sofa 

Now, Pattinson enjoys the luxury of a 9-foot-long sofa, a result of his imaginative sketches and clay models. Inspired by a desire for soft lines and playful interaction, he dedicated his downtime after filming The Batman to creating furniture that defied conventional norms. With the help of designer Nicole Gordon and architect Andrea Cadioli, Pattinson's vision came to life in an ultra-modern, U-shaped sofa with unique features like "floating" arms and embedded pink onyx drink trays. “I started sketching pieces of furniture I thought would make people interact in a playful and informal way,” he explained. “They all had disproportionate, oversized elements that were quite fun. And in the process of making some models out of clay, I found that organic overlapping curves had a similar effect.”
