SOLID WOOD CHAIR
A chair inspired from old Swedish wood tradition with visible construction, thick wood and from traditional use of textiles.
A chair that has a contemporary expression and gives a feeling of novelty, simplicity, warmth, care and continuity. It emphasises the long term values of a solid wood furniture.
The chair could be varied with different types of textiles, from a traditional rag carpet, to a more modern on, or an embroidered textile inspired from old tradition.
The traditional rag carpet was a way to re-use fabric that otherwise would be thrown away. The "rag carpet" of today, can be made of what we nowadays have a lot of, but just throw away like torn nylon stockings or electrical cables.
Created in 2006, in cooperation with IKEA.
