There is nothing like a map to remind you of your place in the world: where you are, where you aren’t, where you’d like to be. We’re especially fans of maps that you can curl up with, such as Brooklyn-based Haptic Lab‘s amazing Soft Maps.
This small design studio creates products, spaces and situations to promote embodiment. Soft maps are quilted maps of some of our favorite cities and neighborhoods, including London, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington DC. They come readymade for $450 or you can customize your quilt for any city in the world.
This is the absolute best present for the modern urbanite. Thanks for putting these guys on our map, Soda Pop Girl!
