In a world filled with products, the question is not what to design, but what design is.

The Pillows are a representation of what product design means in today's society. One of the main purposes of designing and making products is encouraging consumers to buy more new stuff, but everything will eventually end up as garbage. These pillows are one step ahead. At first glance it will look like a pile of garbage bags, but on closer inspection they turn out to be comfortable pillows. A pile of garbage you'd want to jump in to before you throw it away.

This pillow is made with deadstock fabrics. This means that all fabrics are leftover pieces, and the amount of pillows made with one kind of fabric depends on the size of the piece of leftover fabric. The material composition of the used fabrics is unknown. Colors may vary from dark grey to black.
