The seat is made from from a loop of metal mesh, a thin piece of upholstery foam and a "warp and weft" fabric from Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat, which has two colours of yarn woven in different directions.

The designers pulled out individual threads to reveal more of the weft, creating a striped pattern across the fabric.

"Turning flat material into three-dimensional volumetric shapes can be done in many ways, from pattern-making in fashion to complex origami folding," explained designers Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay. "This project is all about the effortlessness of its geometry."
