To be wrapped in a protective cocoon away from the everyday hustle and noise: what sounds nicer? Have a look at this lovely versatile chair, the Cacoon. Use the Cacoon inside your house or in your garden; its use is limitless. So have a seat, and give your imagination free reign!

The invention of the Cacoon

The Cacoon is constructed of a mixture of polyester, cotton and sailing material. You heard right—sailing material! This is not a coincidence, as the inventors of the Cacoon, the founders of the studio Hand-in-out, are also experts in manufacturing sailing yacht.

The shape of the Cacoon is not trivial: designers Sarah and Nick were inspired by the nest of the Weaverbird, whom they saw during a trip to Mexico.

A moment of relaxation

Although the material is waterproof and protects against UV rays and moisture, the Cacoon is not a real tent. However, it can be installed both outside and inside.

The Cacoon may be suspended from many structures, but it also has a handy tripod for outdoor use that can be bought separately.

Easy to clean

The Cacoon can be used in many ways: for example it can provide a cosy bed for afternoon naps, or it can serve as a small cave for children pretending to be explorers. The Cacoon is also easy to clean, just use hot soapy water and rinse. For a more thorough cleaning, wash the Cacoon in the washing machine.

Sizes and colours

If you've fallen for a Cacoon, all you have to do is choose your size and colour. Several options are available: blue, black, red, green, etc.

Three formats exist:

Bonsai: 120 cm wide and 100 kg maximum weight

Simple: 150 cm wide and 200 kg maximum weight

Double: 180 cm wide and 200 kg maximum weight

Once your Cacoon arives, hang out, relax and enjoy a good book.
