Womb chair designed by Brighton student to escape modern life

Fans of Freud prepare to get excited, because a University of Brighton student has designed and built her very own “womb chair”.
Freyja Sewell came up with the idea as a way of escaping the hubbub of modern life.
Creating a near complete igloo shape, the chair allows the user to snuggle up inside with just a small entrance hole.
The chair is called HUSH and is made from 100% wool felt and its cushions are stuffed with recycled wool fibres.
HUSH was recently selected for Grand Designs Live as one of Kevin McCloud’s ‘Green Heroes’.
Freyja said: “With more people having to share homes it is increasingly important to find ways of escaping into places of solitude.
“We need to develop new ways of allowing people to comfortably co-exist in our increasingly densely-populated environments.”
