To ensure that the lounge is inviting and looks comfortable, a soft surface has been developed and created in conjunction with the seat itself. Woollen fleece cuts along with the process of dry needle felting create a knitted blanket as a form of cushioning. The colors of the knit have been established through the process of natural dye; sourcing colours from local waste streams, such as leftover onion skins from local restaurants and rusty nails kept from the palettes. This woolen covering is completely detachable so that it can be easily washed and taken off if necessary, and is held in place through old bike inner tubes which have been tightened and fixed to the pallet.
