PUNCHING BAG

Life is full of intrigues, pressures, and anxieties. A punch is sometimes all we need to break up the cycle of anxiety and break down. The project deals with the transition of the professional sports arena to the day to day life in the domestic space. Through the use of soft fabrics, the user of the bag is transitioned from being anonymous to one that leaves a mark, making the bag personal. The shape and the use of warm materials allow the punching bag to live as floating furniture in the intermediate space of the home.
