The 'White Elephant (Privately Soft)' Has a Soft Cowhide Interior

The ‘White Elephant (Privately Soft)’ creation is a unique flippable structure that is abstractly described as a “building within a building” by designer Jimenez Lai that falls “somewhere between super-furniture and a small house.” Although it doesn’t have all of the fixings that come with a house such as separate rooms or bathroom and kitchen facilities, the cowhide interior will entice a person to reside inside for long periods of time.

The unique interior of the White Elephant (Privately Soft) super-furniture allows the resident to avoid harm if someone were to decide to flip it while he or she was still inside. Exploring the limbo between architecture and furniture, its outer shell is made out of translucent polycarbonate. It can be flipped into eight different stances.
