This pouffe does not cease to surprise. It can best be described as a cross between a piece of furniture and a musical instrument. Puff is a humoristic piece of furniture that makes different cow sounds when you sit on it. The tone of the moo changes depending on how you use the pouffe: for example, if you sit down gently, it emits a long moo that gradually fades away. Puff is charming, its appearance is playful, and the unexpected sounds make sitting down fun. Puff is made of moulded foam and is covered with two shaped textiles; an inner air-tight belt and furniture fabric on the outside. Aesthetically it is surprising and exciting and it plays on tactile qualities. All the senses are stimulated by this single piece of furniture.
