Bovist Ottoman Design by Hella Jongerius for Vitra
Vitra’s Bovist ottoman is adorned with captivating woven patterns and unique textures created by Hella Jongerius, a Dutch textile designer and Vitra’s Art Director for colours and materials. A master of modern weaving technologies and colour design, Jongerius designed the abstract woven pattern of the Bovist ottoman using several different colours and complex jacquard weaves.
You can use Bovist as an ottoman, floor pillow or stool. The synthetic bead filling gives it a nice, sturdy feeling, and the wool blend fabric makes it pleasantly soft to touch. A perfect companion for Bovist is Vitra’s Vlinder sofa, also designed by Jongerius.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
