Cocoon Chair Provides Personal Space In Busy Locales [Pics]
Design studio TILT created pieces of enclosing furniture that create an oasis of quiet in densely populated workplaces.
London-based design studio TILT have created a two-part design iteration comprising a chair and a booth. The enclosing furniture was inspired by codesign workshops with staff and patients at the Whittington Hospital in London.
The cocoon-like forms provide a safe personal space whether standing or sitting and they make users feel protected and cozy, like they are almost immune to the outside world.
The pentagonal shape of ‘Quiet’ encloses the user as they sit or curl up inside and relax or read a book. ‘Call’ has a matching shape but functions as a booth for use while standing.
