paris-based bina baitel studio in collaboration with textile designer luce couillet have created ‘soufflet’, a remote-controlled inflatable booster seat. constructed as an adjustable pillow, it allows the chest or legs to be raised with without any effort. the transportable object can be used while reading, watching tv or sleeping in both indoor and outdoor environments. the folded, fan-shaped structure is made of cotton fabric and includes an air pumping system, that can be changed by a simple touch on the switch. the project has been funded under the DGCIS VATEX program, carried by the R3ilab and supported by VIA and FCBA.


bina baitel‘s ‘soufflet’ will be presented at ‘france design’ 2014 during milan design week at superstudio piu.
