British designer Freyja Sewell's felt cocoons have gone into production and were on show in a Victorian former prison in London this week.

Hush by Freyja Sewell is a felt pod constructed entirely from biodegradable materials, which users can crawl into to work or rest in private.

"By creating an enclosed space, Hush provides a personal retreat, a luxurious escape into a dark, hushed, natural space in the midst of a busy hotel, airport, office or library," explains Sewell.

The outer shell of the pod is made from a single piece of industrial wool felt, while the internal padding is made from recycled wool fibres discarded by carpet manufacturers.

Hush is manufactured by Ness Furniture in Durham and was presented by Sewell at the House of Detention as part of Clerkenwell Design Week.
