Inspire by the draping aesthetic of Batman’s Cape as well as the free flow dynamics of any fabric materials; I wanted to create a piece of furniture that plays with the dichotomy of softness against hardness. This object has to be highly functional and customizable while it should also deceive the user on its actual nature and conceal itself as a sculpture in any large open space. The cape crusader furniture system’s functionality is completely dependent on the user’s imagination. Constructed out of an internal wooden structure clad with any type of fabric or felt the system mimics the flowing movement of softness. Once users and objects are placed upon the design the sculptural element of the system gives way to the actual function of the design and as different objects are places upon it, the aesthetic of the design changes according to different user’s personality!
