A Chair With a Twist

This felt chair puts a new twist on sustainable ecodesign. The FF1 by designers James van Vossel and Tom de Vrieze at Fox and Freeze is comprised of only two components: one solid synthetic felt sheet and flax rope. The felt is coiled and recoiled to form the base, seat, and back while the flax rope holds the form and provides a nice finishing touch.  Aside from drilling holes there is no loss of material and the structure is completely self supporting. Total potential for DIY. Felt follows function in this symmetric yet asymmetric design.

Designers: James van Vossel & Tom de Vrieze
