Made for jumping
“No jumping on the couch!” It’s a common phrase in many a household with kids. But how many of us don’t secretly long for those days of careless fun, when everyday furniture became a trampoline under our feet? To welcome some bounce back into our lives I created ‘Hoppa’. At first glance, it looks like a regular ‘grown- up’ couch. The distinct springy sensation upon sitting down reveals a frame snugly encased in woven elastic. Leaps and bounds are not only permitted; they are actively encouraged.
Hoppa received the Connect(r)ing Award from the Design Academy Eindhoven for reducing the generation gap.
