So your Blandito may not be the seat to offer your aged auntie when she drops by for tea and scones, but as a cosy crash mat for the multifunctional small-space lifestyle of the hip young urban creative with a penchant for modern Italian design?
Furniture of merit, indeed.
Cosy as a sleeping bag or one of those appalling slankets but with, you know, much more padding and much less of the nerdy monk look.
Stuffy as a floor pillow, but with its own smooth moves – transformative!
Yet, furniture-ish in a couch-inspired way, but without all the stiff bits that keep you from slouching in comfort.
Yeah, well, the pictures say it all.
Oh, wait – first, here’s the design concept video for your viewing pleasure.
It’s a fun kind of a claymation thing – something along the lines of what Gumby and Pokey might come up with, if Gumby and Pokey were into furniture design (assuming they still exist, somewhere in the television re-run universe?)…
No mind, just watch it.
As soon as Blandito comes onto the market, that is… Blandito is in limited production – sizes small, medium and large – but their website and Behance profile both say they’re moving towards large-scale production, which does give us hope for getting our grubby paws on this bendy-twisty-morphable lazy pad sometime before the end of the millenium.
Things take time.
