The concept stems from the need for store textiles in outdoor conditions and consider weather hazards such as UV radiation and rain. We created a furniture that is able to store its upholstery and protect it when closed. When open, it allows soft & comfortable sitting with high-end textile, creating the feeling of an indoor furniture. The upholstery is divided into polygons to create living hinges and allow the folding and fitting of the upholstery to different sitting positions.
Our inspiration was the Japanese Bento box and the contrast between the clean outer appearance to the inner richness of colors and textures. The origami technique inspired us to create an impressive layout that exceeds the boundaries of the base structure.
