When Sight Unseen visited the Uglycute studio during the Stockholm Furniture Fair earlier this year, it was filled with newer experiments and prototypes, like this oversized beanbag chair. When the art school Konstfack organized a summer film camp for kids in 2008, they invited Uglycute to design a kind of public screening room to be installed in a local shopping mall. “They needed something for all these kids to sit on while watching the films,” Jonas Nobel explains. “In a mall there’s so much going on, so we used stripes because it’s the clearest, most noticeable pattern with the biggest visual contrast. We get asked a lot if we can produce these beanbags, but we haven’t done it yet. We might flat pack some and ship them to Kiosk, and they could be filled with styrofoam there.”
