Needle Chair by Eva Fly and Suguru Kobayashi
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
The design of this chair is morphing textile and sticks using their contrasting characteristics in the meeting between them. Using the stick as needle, it 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 Danish classics such as 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. The textile of this chair is sponsored by Kvadrat.
