Yiffy the Plushie Tuffet is a piece of furniture designed to provide companionship. Yiffy is covered in faux fur tufts that rise and fall in a breathing rhythm that creates a presence in the room. The rise and fall is accompanied by soft sounds of contentment and tranquility. When sat upon Yiffy responds with coos of greeting, and breathes more rapidly in excitement. Sitting and quietly sharing the moment with Yiffy produces a stream of more contented gurgles, warbles and tweets.

Yiffy was curated by Diana Hare for the Embracing Innovation exhibition at CraftsACT in Canberra from 31 March to 7 May 2011.
