    This series is made for people who are afraid of being abducted. The ‘Hideaway Chair’ aims to blend in with the floor so it is undetectable and opens in such a way as to not disturb items which have been set upon it. Once inside the chair, the user takes a specified body position designed to make the user feel comfortable, proud, and above all, in control. The interior is lined with felt so sounds from the inside are muffled.
