Design Objective: To create bespoke Felt for furniture coverings within a human-sized “Nest”, a site specific installation by Patrick Dougherty. Design and create Felt fabric that simulates a giant rock slab that serves as a sofa and boulders that serve as pillows.

Results

“I honestly have never seen a surface that speaks in such a way. It somehow taps at a place in you that has been lost to the modern world. It is not uncommon for the natural world to elicit that response, but unusual for an object or fabric to have that effect.”
