Recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate)
Hide Storage Pouf is a storage and pouf in one. Hide is made from PET felt, which consists of post-consumer plastic bottles which are extruded into polyester fibers and then pressed into felt. The seat of the pouf can be removed, revealing the hollow space inside which makes the design convenient for storage purposes.
This is not a toy. Please don't let children hide inside.
The PET Felt surface may be cleansed with water. To remove stains, gently dab the area with a dry cloth while the material is still damp. Avoid rubbing the surface as it may harm the material or produce excessive pilling. Allow the surface to air-dry naturally.
It is advisable to utilize professional cleaning products for cleansing the PET Felt surface. However, we recommend testing these cleaning agents on an inconspicuous area first.
Regular vacuuming of the PET Felt surface is recommended to eliminate dust particles.
To prevent damage to the material, it is advisable to keep the pouf away from heat sources such as heaters, fireplaces, and hair dryers.
Hide Storage Pouf is a versatile, multifunctional piece of furniture that is a bit more resourceful. At the heart of the Hide Storage Pouf is its material composition. Crafted from PET felt, this remarkable fabric is made from post-consumer plastic bottles that undergo a transformative process where they are extruded into fine polyester fibers, which are then carefully pressed to create a durable and aesthetically pleasing felt material.
The Hide Storage Pouf's design ingeniously incorporates the concept of hidden storage. The seat of the pouf cleverly doubles as a lid that can be easily removed, unveiling a spacious hollow space inside. This feature allows you to conveniently store toys, blankets, cushions, or any other items you wish to keep close at hand, while maintaining a clean and clutter-free living area.
Hide Storage Pouf can be used for numerous uses as suggested by its name, which perfectly encapsulates its purpose and functionality. Use Hide for additional seating, as a storage solution, for kicking your feet up while lounging on the sofa or as a soft coffee table.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon's designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
"Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression."
