We are always excited to find new ways to look at familiar materials. In this project with O+A Design, we developed an experimental vest + pillow using upcycled nylon spinnaker and kevlar laminate sails. We use these sails for bags all the time, and it was really fun to see them transformed by a new concept. What came out is a vision of the modern California nomad that is equal parts future and fairy tale.
We think it's pretty cool and hope you do too. Please enjoy these photos or check it out in person at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, April 4-7.
