A project sponsored by DuPont and Core77 to conceive of new ways to utilize thermoplastics led Maaike Evers to design these airy indoor/outdoor pillows. Woven and laser cut styles made of Hytrel, are apparently comfy and warm to the touch. As a decorative accessory they are cute and practical, especially for the deck or sunroom. However, to fall asleep on the 'Doily' version would leave quite the impression on your cheek.

Since thermoplastics are remoldable when heated, research is being done to find feasible methods of recycling Hytrel. Stats for Plastic Pillows Trending: Older & Chilly
