Bovist

Hella Jongerius, 2005

Bovist is a decorative floor pillow, stool and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and casual comfort are provided by the tapered radial seams around the sides and a compact filling of synthetic beads. Large embroidered patterns add striking accents to the textile cover, which is sewn together out of contrasting fabrics. With its knitted handle, Bovist can be easily moved from one room to another.
