Rami Tareef's COD chair prototypes were first featured by Dezeen in 2011, and Gaga & Design is preparing to launch a dining chair and an easy chair at the imm cologne trade fair next week.

The chairs' geometric patterns are created by wrapping and weaving cord around steel frames.

Tareef created the chairs using techniques he learned from a wicker craftsman in Jerusalem.

We've previously featured crocheted furniture made with yarns of PVC, tape and washing lines as well as a tubular steel chair made with techniques for making bamboo furniture.

Here's some more information from the designer:

COD is furniture collection of two chairs made from tubular steel structure woven with synthetic sleeve. The collection comprises a dining chair and easy chair designed and developed by Rami Tareef during the last two years. When Gaga & Design showed an interest in the project, the designer and the brand collaborated to finish the development process and bring the collection to the market.

The design is based on traditional weaving techniques. One of the designer's goals was to preserve the handmade and craft values to keep these traditions present in contemporary design. The geometric forms identified with the design language were created by deconstructing the technique while examining the relationship between the chair's structure and the continuously woven sleeve. The chairs will be unveiled at the imm cologne fair in 2013 under the brand name Gaga & Design.

    Great design at the first sight, but then small bothers. I think the smaller chair crochet pattern is better because it has no ‘single’ fibres, which can wear away very fast in public spaces.

    The big one for the show; the small one to buy and put anywhere you want.
