The love and hate headrests were designed as an interpretation of traditional west african headrest.  I was inspired by the resourcefulness of west african culture and how they use materials in their immediate surroundings . In London, we don’t need the use of headrests for sleeping, so in keep with the tradition of practicality I decided to scale the design up so that someone could sit. I used scrap cardboard and cut out the specific shapes, which represented the ndsibidi script for love and hate, I then cladded the pieces with the paper pulp mixture so that it was durable and can withstand the weight of someone seated on top.
