Babafelt

About this project

Babafelt is made from thick natural wool felt. The felt sheet is cut and folded to make a cocoon-like space in which to sit, which responds to the occupants’ movements and hugs them as they lean back. The thick walnut legs are steam bent to follow the natural curve of the felt.

Felt is a high tech ecological material which comes from a low tech renewable source. The felt is made from high quality wool fibres which are mechanically pressed using heat, moisture and pressure.
