This was my very first impression, I told myself this was so inspiring that I should be working with it. My main idea was to have a playful concept, what refers to the inner child in every one of us. Enlarged object by themselves generate the feeling of being little as children. With the enlarged needles I am relating to textile techniques in an abstract way" says Fogarasi.
The sitting part is a plywood structure, with two layers of foam underneath the fabric. The lathed ash legs are held by metal fixings which you can screw from underneath thus the construction can be taken apart. The spheres on the end are made of foam as well, and they were upholstered by hand from 6 pieces of fabric supported by Kvadrat.
