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.

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Paper is wood

Are you fond of white

Would you like to take a seat

Can you catach a rainbow

Believe it or not you're a light-weight

Have you heard the news

Does glass always pass the light?  

Do you remember antiques

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold
