    Thank the Gods. I have so many inverted trapezoidal 2-sided mat-cocoons in which to fetally lay. Now I can replace them all with something that also doubles as esoteric, boringly-shaped mat-furniture.

    Clearly it’s some form of sex furniture pretending to have other uses.

    I think I’ve found a weekend project!

    These should be distributed to kindergartens and preschools everywhere. Three kids could fit on one of those crosswise for nap time, and if you flip over that “cocoon” you’d have the beginnings of a pretty decent fort. It seems like most kids are born engineers and architects.

    By ‘cocoon’, I believe they mean ‘coffin’.

    Looks too big to wedge under my desk at work where I like to nap. good concept though.

    If it had hinged end flaps it could turn into a triangular-cross section coffin, for that final, eternal rest.

    bottom left looks pretty uncomfortable. It looks like he’s holding himself in mid-air with his weight on the back of his knees.

    Looks neither comfortable nor attractive and I cannot imagine any possible purpose for the cocoon — too dangerous for little kids with those X straps on the end and what adult feels the need to sleep in something that looks like a refrigerator box? The lounger would only be even minimally comfortable to people of exactly a certain height. And even as a sleep mat, how comfortable could that thin padding be? Epic fail, to my mind.

      Yo! Sounds like fun!

    Hypothetically it’s a nice idea but I don’t want one in my home. The mat configuration is the only one that looks comfortable. I reckon creative folks have to go through a lot of ideas that work hypothetically but not in real life to get to ones that do work for real, so I still consider this worth trying, at least as a prototype.

    Looks uncomfortable. To be that rigid it can’t be cushy.

    So… it’s like a futon but less attractive. K.
