The fabric structures are inspired by vintage tailoring.

Here's an explanation from Färg:


RE:cover - Bespoke dresses for old chairs.


The project looks to the beauty of those shapes that never change. Fredrik takes his inspiration from classic tailoring, such as suits and
dinner jackets that never go out of style.


By using old chairs from flea markets and removing the backrest, replacing it with a new textile dress/structure of mouldable polyester felt, he is creating “slow fashion” furniture, giving the old chairs a new glance.


Material: Old chairs and a new cover of 100% recyclable polyester felt.
