A company called Blandito has designed a circular, foldable pillow that can be manipulated into many shapes (bed, chair, cubbies of different kinds.) Extra larges for adults as well as children's size. I can see this being great biofeedback for sensory averse/craving children. Too bad it's still in the design phase!
I just love this idea for a laundry chute because I'm wild about boats. oceans, lakes, rivers, fish, seaweed, zebra mussels on shipwrecks that slice your hand open - it's so calming to me. I don't think this is necessarily elegant, but I would love to see it everyday.
