Gallery: Traditional Sandbags Become a Colorful and Interactive Install...


Sandbags aren’t an obvious choice when it comes to furniture, but these unlikely cushions get a colorful redesign by Antenna Design. Created for an installation called SPECTRE, and located in a cell of a former Torino, Italy prison, the bags were covered in soft felt cases and stacked up like furniture for visitors to interact with and enjoy.

The concept by the New York-based designers is a fun way to get visitors to play with the sandbags and create spaces for sitting back and relaxing — or even taking a nap! The sandbags can also be piled up into different shapes to make barricades, sofas and seats, or laid out to form a bed-like design. Here, imagination is one’s only limit!
