Quilt by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec



Milan 09: designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec launched a range of upholstered seating called Quilt for furniture brand Established & Sons in Milan last week.


The seating comprises a fibreglass shell and steel frame, covered in stretchy fabric.


Pieces of foam are inserted into pockets in the cover, resulting in a quilted appearance.

Here's some text from Established & Sons:


Quilt by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

The visual appearance of comfort is articulated through the unusual upholstery of the Quilt series of chairs and sofas. A pocketed outer layer, constructed from hi-tech stretch fabric, has individual foam pieces inserted within it.


This outer layer is texturally rich and inviting. Like a quilt or rug, it is then placed loosely upon a fibreglass shell and steel frame. The Quilt chair is an antithesis to the formal, structured sofas and seating designs we have become familiar with.
