Knotted Chair

Cappellini_Knotted_Chair_10.jpgmagnifyingGlass.png

 

This lightweight chair combines industrial techniques and handcrafting. A thread constructed of aramid and carbon fibres, is knotted into the shape of a chair and then impregnated with epoxy resin and hung in a frame to dry, leaving the final form in the hands of gravity. The Knotted Chair was a result of Droog’s 1996 Dry Tech I project.
