The Cushionary Good


Interior textiles

Fusion of textiler surface und cushion

Between body and object there mostly is a contrast: stable and hard materials come upon soft human body parts needed to be protect from hurting contact. To bridge these divergences and to cushion hard edges, textile surfaces are the best medium. Therefore the motivation was born to generate textiles which have a cushioning, voluminous main character. Both the combination of textile cushioning and the double sided design of the pieces give range to play around with and explore the possibilities of individual comfort. The design approaches take the sustainability concept as a basic thought of designing: less material and products, more and long lasting designs we develop emotional connection to. With these textiles we can explore “non-lieus” in rooms, activate objects and pose the question of how we will use our environment differently if we always have a flexible cushioning textile to lean on?
