Coolest Thing I've Seen All Week Part 2

I've always believed that designers (clothing, fashion, graphic, web, etc) shouldn't have the same objects in their houses that "normal" people do because of their taste and perception of the world. This is a perfect example.

A duvet cover that looks like cardboard boxes? This is so unusual that I have to have it.

Created by
Snurkengoed, who are Erik van Loo and Peggy van Neer from the Netherlands. But they don't do it just because we think its cool. "Sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless young person doesn’t have to" is their slogan, and 30% of the gross profits go to
Centrepoint, the UK charity for homeless young people aged 16-25.
