Blue Gorilla Sofa

2015/12/16

I wanted to work up a used furniture long time, now it's finally happened - the Blue Gorilla sofa.
The sofa was used for years only in my previous office, then in my atelier.

Since the skeleton was very good and stable, I found it a shame to through away the sofa.
The leatherette I removed completely, the side arms were dismantled. Based on the artificial leather pieces I have
made heavy canvas parts cut. After the re-covering of the sofa with this canvas was primed.
The side arms have been repeatedly treated with oxidizing agents to achieve the strong rust effect.
On the seat and backrest multiple glazing layers were applied with acrylic color. All surfaces are sealed to protect.

You may sit on the sofa, but it is not recommended in the long run.
