At A Glance:
Blockoid. The word speaks of a thing that's not quite what you expect it to be. Is it just a shadow, or is it the form? Blockoid is "ottoman" mixed with "sculpture," with a dash of "beast" thrown in for fun. Like it was carved from a block of granite and set in place by the ancients, the Blockoid Ottoman is ready to take over your living room with its undeniable presence and solidly minimalist shape.
What's To Like:
Oh, if you've looked at the Blockoid Ottoman, you probably already know what's to like about it - its visceral shape, simple lines, and unity of structure are the real winners here.
What's Not to Like:
On the flip side, Blockoid's shape can be what you don't like. And, if you don't, you probably know it by now. Here, try the Dane Ottoman on for size.
The Bottom Line:
The Blu Dot Blockoid Ottoman is a visually strong ottoman that overwrites the traditional ottoman form with a wholly sculptural shape. If it were any more minimalist, it'd be made from a single material. It's the perfect complement for the Couchoid Sofa, the Couchoid Studio Sofa, and the Couchoid Lounge Chair.
