Playful offering: Petstools by Hanna Emelie Ernsting

German designer Hanna Emelie Ernsting launched a series of upholstered stools in the shape of animals. Part blanket, part stool, the Petstools are each upholstered with one of four detachable and washable wool covers that each form the shape of a different animal. It is designed additionally for children, as it encourages play and interaction.

During her studies, she worked with the Dutch designer Ineke Hans in Arnhem, with the architects ISAR in San Francisco, as well as with the Vitra Design Museum.
