A carpet that becomes a seat and integrates an enclosed reading area. The “reading (design) island” is very much like a cosy old armchair. The carpets that cover the folding structure of the seats are hand-made Kelims. When folded, the product takes up little space and is easy to transport. It can be used in public buildings to create a reading corner, complemented by a small table, a lamp and a screen as shown in the touring exhibition “reading (design) islands, 10 design seats for 10 design books”.
