A place to hide, a warm cocoon, a biodegradable space, a felt pod… Hush is all of these things and more. Designed by University of Brighton graduate Freyja Sewell, Hush is a snuggly pod that offers a quiet place to hide and escape. Hand-sewn from biodegradable local grey felt, this object-space is a private micro retreat that can be set up practically anywhere.
In a world with an increasingly virtual connection between humans, where the majority of us have a public online profile, with CCTV cameras everywhere and new social networks sprouting all the time, it is nice – and healthy – to sometimes withdraw from it all. Spotted by Inhabitat at the latest New Designers Show in London, Hush offers a quiet, dark, soft, and natural place to take a break from the stresses of daily life and other people.
