Vitra Bovist Floor Cushion by Hella Jongerius
Hella Jongerius Bovist Poufs made by Vitra in Europe. Featuring the most beautiful embroideries that are based on historic Dutch lace designs, Amsterdam based designer Hella Jongerius has transformed these stylish poufs into decorative objects with dual functions: they are made to be comfortable and look good in any space.
Bovist is a decorative floor cushion, stool, and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and high degree of seating comfort are thanks to the large number of taken-in strips on the side and a filling of small plastic balls. The fabric cover features a lively pattern in a complex jacquard weave. The motif and colour scheme are inspired by the Vlinder sofa and its multi-layer design.
Bovist was designed by Hella Jongerius. Born 1963 in de Meern, Netherlands, Hella studied design at the Industrial Design Academy in Eindhoven. She subsequently attracted international attention through her work for the Dutch design label Droog Design. She taught at the Design Academy in Eindhoven from 1998-99, serving as head of the department Living/Atelier from 2000-04. In 2000, she founded the design studio JongeriusLab in Rotterdam, where she creates, produced and markets many of her designs primarily dishware, vases, textiles and furnishings. Hella Jongerius' work often blurs the borders between design and handicrafts, or art and technology. Along with Jasper Morrison and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Hella Jongerius has made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
