The Coiling Collection by Raw Edges

London designers Raw Edges present furniture made from 326 metres of coiled felt at Fat Galerie in Paris.

Each object is made by wrapping strips of felt around wooden structures and coating one side in silicon, which soaks into the fibres to form a rigid object.

Prototypes of the project were first shown at Ten Small Atlases in Milan last April.

Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay – Raw-Edges

A collection of interior objects made out of 100% Woollen felt and silicon –2010

The Coiling Collection by Raw Edges

Long strip of felt is coiled and formed into a three dimensional body. One side of the felt is being left in its natural softness, where the other side is saturated with silicon. The felt absorbs the silicon into its fibres and together they set into a hybrid material with structural build.

The Coiling Collection by Raw Edges

The principle has been inspired by composite materials, a combination between bonding and structural materials, similar to reinforce concrete or the ancient cob set from mud and straw.

The show in FAT Galerie Paris includes seven new prototypes made out of 326 meters of felt in total.

    well done!!! So appealing yet smart and simple. Contemporary design with traditional material. Perfect furniture for an office environment to absorb the noise.

    Brilliant idea to incorporate a traditional material into a piece truly unique.

  • Solara

    I think the idea is incredible but the legs feel stuck on and not in unison with the curves created by the felts intricate pattern… its not complete in my eyes I would suggest to go back to the drawing board with the concept.

    I like how the silicon and felt compliment each other. I agree with Solara regarding the discontinuity around the legs however. Very interesting!
