Fashion and furniture design intersect with a chair cushion that unzips from the frame to turn into a wearable clothing item. The ‘Dress Me Up Chair’ by Magda Pawlas is a simple steel wireframe seat covered in a water-resistant quilted pad that can be adapted in various ways or removed altogether to make the sitter more comfortable.
When it’s placed on the chair, the sides wrapped around the arms, it looks like any other chair pad. But the arm sections can be zipped up around the user while seated for added warmth, or claimed as part of the sitter’s ensemble.
The project aims to find common ground between the design of clothes and furniture, bringing them together in one item that can meet a variety of needs. Wearable furniture has become something of an intriguing, albeit odd, trend lately – check out a wearable chair that transforms from a harness to a seat when you need it, and a coat that’s essentially a wearable homeless shelter.
