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. It should come as no surprise that the prêt-a-porter collection began as a joke–Hoodini is, after all, only a branch or two away from the Snuggie on the infomercial family tree.
