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.
