Strange or Useful? The Chair Hoodie

Oh My God Now Even The Chairs Are Wearing Hoodies Co Design business design

Have you ever been sitting in a chair and thought, “Man, my head sure is cold,”? Us neither but apparently someone has and a whole team of designers in Amsterdam are here to solve their problem! Co.Design has the whole story here.

“Why buy a new chair when you can dress up the one you have?” asked a team of designers in Amsterdam. There’s the upholstery option, of course, but that means enlisting a professional, which quickly gets expensive. Plus, you can’t scale in places like offices and schools.

So why not give that chair a new look by throwing something on quick and easy with little investment, the way you do a piece of clothing? A hoodie perhaps?

These bizarre slipcovers from Bernotat & Co. give your furniture a makeover in this fashion. The Chair Wear series includes four designs: Pique-Pocket, Knit-Net, Hoodini, and Big Baggy.
