‘pause’ indoor hut by maurizio prina



conceived as a space where anybody can relax, read, rest and even have guests, ‘pause’, the indoor hut for casa europa by italian designer maurizio prina was made to feel like a ‘home inside a home’. the stucture is composed of modules made with colored cloth built over iron framework, which allows users to change the panels by combining different configurations.

  • I don’t see how one could possibly lean against the fabric that covers the sides… The cushions in the first picture seem to indicate otherwise, but I don’t think the velcro would hold. Furthermore, the relation of the mattress to the structure reveals large gaps that may prove uncomfortable in any seating position.
