We’re not fans of bean bags … far from it we find bean bags the absolute antithesis of comfort.
We were however intrigued by nest + nido from Danish producer Karup
because you can hide in them.
obviously not really hide like a fox from the advancing hounds, but more remove yourself from your direct surroundings – like a hedgehog.
As such both nest + nido offer users the chance to find their own space in an otherwise hectic world…. or simply to withdraw when you have little interest in the outside world.
Those of you familiar with Vitra’s Net’n’Nest concept will understand the possible uses in an office environment; and those with kids will simply understand it.
And so we can ignore the fact that they resemble overgrown bean bags….just this once.
