CUSHION REDEFINITION at the BIEN festival in Kranj

The students wondered what the pillow meant to us in this uncertain corona time. Either as a symbol of comfort and cosyness at home or. shelter during forced confinement between four walls. They researched the concept of “cocooning”. (“Cocooning means staying in your home isolated from perceived danger instead of going out. The term was coined in 1981 by Faith Popcorn, trend forecaster and marketing consultant. Used in marketing, social science, parenting, economic trend forecasting, self-help , religions / Wikipedia «)

They designed their starting points for their own collection of pillows according to the purpose, target group, technical implementation and sales potential. They designed a collection of 5 sales textile pillows, with recommended dimensions of 50×50 cm or 60×80 cm in any technique, one of which they also made.
