For misbehaving children, the quiet chair might be an unbearable punishment but TILT’s Quiet Chair is an appreciated haven from the rest of the world. The London-based studio’s recent workshops with staff and patients at London’s Whittington Hospital inspired the cocoon-like design of Quiet Chair. The pentagonal wood frame features a lipped overhand that helps create a sense of protected and personal space, one that is surrounded by soft blue cushions. The intimate cove is small enough for an individual to curl up in repose, but also spacious enough to accommodate an upright reading position. It is easy to imagine falling asleep and entering a utopian landscape of dreams in this chair.
