Child's bean bag (unisex)
PIT STOP by Bertjan Pot
A tyre to be a bean bag? Cool!
The wool cover of the tyre-shaped ›Pit Stop‹ bean-
bag is knitted and sewn to a polyester fleece in
one process. The inner synthetic fiber gives the
stability, the outer knitted wool the soft touch.
Computerised programming of the knitting ma-
chine enables a knitting pattern specially devel-

the tread profile, the sidewalls and the integrated
logo are knitted in one single go, producing very
little leftover waste material. The tyre has a diam-
eter of 80 cm and a height of 30 cm.
Comfortable, cool and individual: ›Pit Stop‹ offers
its owners ample space and opportunities to play
– and not just for kids.... And there is something
else quite unusual for a ›child furniture‹: It can sit
in any living room without interfering with the
overall interior design. ›Pit Stop‹, a tyre that works
as an indoor toy. Simply cool. Not only for the
