Design Story

The Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra pursues the ideal of realising powerful designs in order to sustainably improve the living quality of people in their homes, offices and workplaces. Hella Jongerius' seat cushion Bovist from 2005 is a new interpretation of the genre and a stool, pillow and ottoman all in one. Whether used in front of the couch as a foot rest, next to the small table as seating or just as adorable decoration element - Bovist is a practical and appropriate addition to any living area. The Dutch designer Hella Jongerius is known for designs that combine modernity and tradition and thus often combine high and low tech. Traditional materials and innovative ergonomic shapes can often be found in her furniture and also Bovist impresses in such regards. The Bovist seat cushions are available in the motives "Dove" with embroidered doves, "Pottery" with rustic jugs and vessels and "Lacemaker", showing a lacemaker.
