Demna Gvasalia teamed up with New York-based Russian furniture designer Harry Nuriev to design a brand new sofa for Balenciaga. The sofa design uses transparent polyethylene bags and "our grandmother's old clothes".
“I want that nostalgic feeling but in a new modern, super high technology way, I remember the pile of clothes from when you dress up. It is always a random pattern of colors but is beautiful. It is important to me to show young designers that you can work with upcycled things. You can execute it in a beautiful way, in the right shape, and with the right material”, Harry Nuriev said.
