After becoming somewhat depressed by the lack of having either a rocketship armchair or a replica VW Mini bus van bed, I became inspired to work my way out of the existential malaise by building a couch cushion pillow fort. The wonders of the warm comfortable hole from childhood. Perhaps that’s where most great architects and designers are first smitten with the bug. Even as kids we have an innate desire to some how transform our world, whether it’s a primordial drive for protection, security or simply shelter. The lowly pillow fort is where it all begins. Although there was probably a good amount of Lego involved too.
