In Estonian Kuupesa means „Moon’s Nest“. It is a wool felt play nest inviting to have fun with friends in an imaginative universe: it can be made into a boat, a cradle, a hammock, a shell, a shield, a pod, or a full moon.
The object caters for the growing need to escape the noise and hassle of the surroundings and have a personal space and time. It consist of 12 slices with 6 zippers and flexible rods for structure. Initially developed as a project for hackatron Garage 48 in Estonian Academy of Arts in 2016, the product has been developed further by a team of textile designers and interior architects.
