Israeli designer Omri Barzeev has created a chair using felt that has been folded into shape and clamped in place by its legs.

The laser-cut felt seat is clamped into the wooden base by plastic fixings.

Here's some text from the designer:

--

My project Zaza is a new chair that created and based on a research and integration of various substance and in search of the morphology, resulting from a combination of substances consisting of a variety of characteristics which supplement each other to create harmony in the final product.

The deviation from the common rules has brought about a surprising product for the viewer and user.

Zaza is flexible and presents an equal relationship between the chair and the user, so it is able to create and adjust itself to each individual user.

The upper part of the chair made by laser cutting technology and layered with felt, by folding it, the chair gets its shape and its structure.

The lower part made out of wood and  served the upper part by besting it.

    3.5 Seconds.

    That’s how long I would be able to sit in this chair before I tipped it and landed on my ass.

    I really like its soft felt upper and the contrasting wood. And just because I would be compelled to rock back in it, doesn’t mean it isn’t good. It is.

    cool, but it looks like it would fall over if you lent back in it

    Reminds me of this project by Donald Knorr for Knoll 1948 revisited in felt and wood

    It has great visual feeling, but I’m not sure about stability of this item. But it looks allright, it could be stable in my opinion.

    Looks terribly uncomfortable.
    It appears better suited for tossing objects in it from a distance.
