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.

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.

    is it the evolution of “sacco” or does it have a solid core?

    Who knows Grcic used also a football to make the One for Magis…
