Multi-Functional Cover

I am interested in the word 'cover' because most objects in our daily life are covered by something for different reasons. For example, windows are covered by curtains for privacy and keeping the warmth in. There is a similar relationship between clothing and our body.

By extension, we can find this phenomenon all over the world for different reasons and, it could be interpreted depends on different situations such as politics, religion, culture and so on. In my opinion, the bed is the most familiar and relative space to cover in our daily routines.

So I researched what people's favorite activity to do in bed is. The results are that people like watching TV or film, eating and reading a book. Based on this research, I will make people help to realise these behaviors easily in the bed with pragmatic ways.

Firstly, this duvet has 10 pockets, and a cushion pad to go in each. When the cushion pads are put into the duvet, pads make this blanket high so people can put laptop, books and plates on the pads.

Secondly, this blanket has a strap so people can wear it as a poncho or like a shroud, and can roll it up to bring it outside. Furthermore, people can hang this blanket on the wall, this duvet function as a wall pocket. But above all, it consists of 25 images of patchwork, which make one big photo.

According to dream interpretation, seeing lush green trees in a dream symbolizes new hopes, growth, desires, knowledge, and life. It also implies strength, protection and stability. So people unconsciously get a chance to dream about the nature because of this.
