Everyday Design: Map Quilts

We love hearing success stories of those who go after that thing inside of them. That thing that drives them to be artistic. We have a sincere love and appreciation for innovation and functional design and we have been truly drooling over Emily Fischer’s work at the Haptic Lab.

Get ready to curl up to some wonderful white space…

“Soft-Maps are quilted maps of cities and neighborhoods that represent someone’s unique place in the world, and are tactile keepsakes meant to last generations.” – Heptic Lab Website

“This exquisitely detailed, entirely hand-stitched quilt is made in collaboration with our certified fair labor partners in India. Made of 100% superfine cotton, this heirloom quilt will last a lifetime.” – Heptic Lab Website

“The word ‘haptic’ refers to the sense of touch—a grossly underutilized aspect of design. Haptic Lab is really about promoting embodiment by creating products and spaces that encourage people to interact with their environment in a physical way. I consider my work to be part of the slow design movement.” – ReadyMade Interview

We love it, all of it! We love her purpose, and we LOVE her quilts. What a truly unique anniversary or wedding gift to commemorate where you first met or that favorite city that you call “home”.
