Inspired by a Cardboard Box, This Chair Is a Private Escape

 Recognizing that many high-energy offices and homes shared a similar need for spaces to take short breaks, they started thinking about design solutions. The result is called Windowseat and continues the recent trend of forward-thinking designers creating small sanctuaries using furniture. “Along with this hyper-collaborative work style comes a need to escape and have a moment to one’s self,” says Simonian. “We wanted to explore the idea of creating a room within a room.”
The pair is best known for their high profile work on projects like the Xbox 360, but the inspiration for this project came from a low-tech source — a cardboard box. “We were inspired by playing inside large boxes as kids,” say Simonian “This boxiness seemed forced as a furniture piece, however, so we cut away most of the box retaining just enough to maintain the magical feeling we were after.”
