Kelp Chair by Interesting Times Gang
Interesting Times Gang

Interesting Times Gang has created a work that combines flowing shapes of underwater life with the latest advances in 3D-printing technology and material development.

The piece is part of the Kelp Collection, inspired by biomimicry with undulating lines and organically swaying silhouettes to emulate the forms found in ocean vegetation. The chair design sees large-scale 3D-printed furniture made from recycled fishing nets.

It was originally commissioned by two-star Michelin chefs Niclas Jönsson and Daniel Höglander for their new venture, a sushi restaurant concept by the name of Black Milk Sushi located in the heart of Stockholm.

This project has been longlisted in the seating design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.

Designer: Interesting Times Gang
