Product news: the seat of this chair by London design duo Raw Edges for Italian brand Moroso is made from a single loop of material.
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."
Raw Edges recently created a bookcase shaped like a loom to display novels by young British writers and a display of hundreds of fabric ribbons for Kvadrat – see all design by Raw Edges.
We've published several Moroso products lately, including Patricia Urquiola's chairs that wrap around the sitter like a hood and Nendo's chair inspired by stiletto heels – see all furniture by Moroso.
