BuzziHood by Alain Gilles

Designed by Alain Gilles, the BuzziHood is one of a few designs he created for Buzzispace, shown this past week at Maison & Objet.

This design is all about privacy. It reminds me of those rows of payphones in the airport except with BuzziHoods, you use your own cell phone to make calls. The hoods are designed to make you feel protected and isolated, Alain explains, “just like when you pull your hood on from those warm hoodies, or when you bring those high collars up from your jacket.”

Each hood is made from recycled fabric and available in tons of fun colors, including custom fabrics. There is also the possibility to add a special little notepad or tablet so one can easily take notes or write down a number while making a phone call.
