Babafelt by London-based designer Charlotte Kingsnorth is an easy chair made from thick merino wool felt. The felt sheet is cut and folded to make a cocoon-like space in which to sit, which responds to the occupant’s movements and hugs them as they lean back. Babafelt was originally commissioned by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for their ecologically-built headquarters in Seattle.
