Pillow Talk, Droog-Style

cushioncontrol.jpg‘Tis the season for those campy The Clapper commercials (Clap on! Clap off!), but why bother with a round of applause when just a nudge will do? Enter “Cushion Control,” a trio of pillows that can perform key functions of your TV’s remote control. Just squeeze the appropriate pillow to turn the TV on and off, change the channel, or adjust the volume. The pillows are the latest project of Didier Hilhorst and Nicholas Zambetti for Droog Design. According to the designing duo, “These remote controls can be thrown around, transforming the fights over who has the remote into playful cushion fights.” To say nothing of their potential to solve our perennial problem: misplacing the remote…between the sofa cushions.
