Intimate seating isn’t normally a concern for many, but as spaces become more open and vulnerable, people tend to want their own little nooks of privacy for a plethora of reasons. The ‘Hush’ micro-retreat by Freyja Sewell is about as intimate as you can get, with its inspiration taken from the concept of the womb.
While co-existence has become the norm, keeping one’s sanity is an important part of dwelling in a densely populated area. Sewell notes that “‘Hush’ provides a personal retreat, an escape into a dark, quiet, natural space, or state of mind. Hush can also be transformed to provide more traditional open seating.” Another plus of this simple design is that it’s made from 100% wool felt and its cushions are stuffed with recycled wool fibers for a completely green design.
