At Benj&Soto, we've reinvented furniture. Our soft, cube shaped furniture called Sit on Everything functions as a seat whilst the design brightens up an interior. After 4 years of development and tests, we're finally able to offer innovative and artistic furniture.
Soft Seating: Shaped like a strong box or crate, Sit on Everything is incredibly soft, durable, comfortable, easy to maintain, water resistant and available for indoor or outdoor use.
Hand-Made: All our work is hand crafted and designed by our in-house team or in collaboration with creatives from all over the world.
Patented: We have been perfecting the manufacturing, design and development of our work with FiberCoated foam. This patent-pending foam will ensure a super comfortable seating experience.
Our patent-pending FiberCoated foam is the result of 4 years in-house development and intensive testing in certified laboratories. It is a product now brought to life to bring a new range of possibilities to the furniture industry.
1. THE BASE of the product is a soft high-quality foam, treated with multiple layers of FiberCoatings. The result is a soft and strong protected foam.
2. DESIGN We use various techniques to create a one of a kind design. Our most frequently used method is sublimation, a printing process that uses heat to transfer dye onto the product.
3. FINISHING All cubes are finished with multiple layers of our specially developed protective coatings to make them ever durable. This all happens with an eye for detail and precision.
4. THE FINAL RESULT is a high quality piece of furniture. Suitable for domestic use, while easily meeting the standards for professional use.
Because the possibilities of FiberCoated Foam are limitless, we experiment with different techniques for new collections, for example incorporating hand-written art or applying precious metal leafs directly onto the cube. Finished with our protective coatings.
The Sit on Everything range is made up soft cubes and benches. Available editions are designs of Fruit, Vegetables, Marble, Wood, Special Collection, Cubic Photo Art, Sringara, Bambam and Sit on Billions.
POUF: A standard POUF is 40 x 40 x 48cm, with one side slightly longer than the other sides. POUF designs include the Fruit Collection, Vegetable Collection, Marble Collection, Wood Collection, Special Collection, Sringara and Bambam.
POUF Cubic: A Cubic POUF is 40 x 40 x 40cm, where all sides are the same length. POUF Cubic designs are the Cubic Photo Art range.
Benches: The lengths of Benches range from 45 x 45 x 90cm, 24 x 33 x 63cm and 33 x 39 x 63cm with one length measurably longer than the other sides. Bench designs include the Vegetable Collection, Wood Collection and Sit on Billions.
Feet Bases: We also have Poufs and Benches with attached bases called "Feet", available in black or white. Specially designed for outdoor use the Feet provide more stability and extra functions to our furniture.
INDOOR USE - COLAB
All Indoor Use - Colab products are made for inside homes, offices, nightclubs and other interiors. They are durable, protected with FiberCoated foam and spill-proof.
OUTDOOR USE - FEET
All Outdoor Use - Feet products are made for the outside. They are durable, extra-protected with FiberCoated foam and can withstand strong weather conditions.
FEET is the assembly of a cube with a solid base and can be used indoors or outdoors.
The material HI-MACS® is a eco-friendly non-porous surface with high resistance to everyday stains, scratches and heat. It has a durability similar to that of natural stone, but can nevertheless be fabricated in the same way as wood into a seamless design that prevents growth of bacteria and mold. On one hand, it is easy to maintain and fabricate with premium quality, on the other, it is renewable and can be recycled at the end of its cycle.
OUTDOOR USE - FEET - PRECIOUS METALS
Real Precious Metals: FiberCoating has numerous features, one of them is that we are able to apply real precious metals underneath our protective coating. From Superior Silver, 24kt Gold to Pure Copper leaves.
All Outdoor Use - Feet - Precious Metals products are made for the outside. They are durable, extra-protected with FiberCoated foam and can withstand strong weather conditions.
*48cm or 19 inches is commonly used as a standard height for chairs or other seating elements.

All our products have been tested intensively over the last 4 years in certified laboratories for domestic and professional use. We adjusted the production process and formula of our FiberCoatings multiple times to develop a premium quality for the Benj&Soto cubes.
Inspired by my father's creative mind and knowledge for materials, 4 years ago I started with the development of our cubes. After the making of the first prototypes I was confident about the potential of our products, but aware of the improvements that needed to happen. My aim was to make creative soft furniture that stands out not only by its look and feel, but also by its quality.
Creating a product from scratch, combining new materials, inventing a new production method and making our own machines is very time consuming and expensive. Luckily I found an investor who believed in the potential at an early stage, and so we had the funds to further develop the cubes.
During these four years, we encountered many ups and downs. Our hard work resulted in the creation of various designs, a perfected printing process and an improved quality. With the help of government funding we developed a waterproof FiberCoating for outdoor use.
We shared our first designs through Instagram and had a modest success with happy customers from the US, Europe, Canada, Malaysia, Australia,... That way we could test the efficiency of our production process, the delivery and receive feedback from the customers.
After months of preparations for this campaign we are ready to take Benj&Soto to the next step. We hope to reach our funding goal with your help to:
- Meet minimum order quantities for the FEET collection
- Grow our team
- Improve machinery

Risks and challenges
Over the years, we've grown as a team and are now more than ready for this new chapter. We've been preparing for months for this project, considered all the risks and challenges and have a well thought out plan. Because of our experience with both shipping and manufacturing cubes, we feel confident about the challenges ahead and the delivery of the cubes.
All our partners are ready and our team is already growing, so from the moment our project is funded we are ready to start. The Benj&Soto team will continue to commit and keep you informed throughout this journey.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
