Bent by Anne-Cécile Rappa



Industrial designer Anne-Cécile Rappa has designed Bent, a pouf made of recycled polypropylene bags knitted together.


Bent, which is also filled with used plastic bags, is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use and can be cleaned in a washing machine.


The poufs are made at a woman's co-operative in Morocco.

    i saw this work at salone satellite during milan design week.
    It was one of the most interesting work there.

    I had to look up the word “pouf.” One of the definitions was “a rounded ottoman,” which I’ll assume that’s what this is used for.

    With that in mind … looks comfy enough.
