Red Pepper Quilts. Quilts. Readymade Quilts : Haptic Lab. Haptic Lab is a small design studio in Brooklyn that creates products, spaces and situations to promote embodiment. The word "haptic" refers to the sense of touch, and everything we design is meant to inspire meaningful connections through that sense. Soft-Maps are quilted maps of cities and neighborhoods that represent someone's unique place in the world, and are tactile keepsakes meant to last generations.
