Needle Chair


Wood, textile

The design of this chair is morphing textile and sticks by using their contrasting characteristics in the meeting between them. Using the stick as needle sewing through the fabric, the stiffness of the stick and the formability of the textile is emphasized, while fixing the textile to the chair. The textile makes a soft and flexible backrest and gets a curved structure that provides the chair with a tactile quality. The shape of the construction is inspired by the showy chieftain chair and the modesty of the FDB collection. It’s a simple chair telling a poetic story about the meeting between the two materials. The textile part of the chair is removable, so it can be washed or changed – so don’t worry about spilling your hot chocolate or getting a new favorite color.
The chair is designed in cooperration with Suguru Kobayashi.
The textile is sponsored by Kvadrat.
