Concept

Garment is a lounge club chair with a unique approach to the application and construction of textile in the furniture industry. The chair is a study into how to ’dress’ a piece of furniture defying the conventional rules and construction of typical upholstery. A single piece of textile is loosely folded around a distinctive geometric moulded polyurethane foam form. This construction and loose cover allows for creases to become part of the character of the chair reminiscent of a piece of fashion and increases the sensation of visual softness. The chairs construction is ‘stitch less’ as it is comprised of a single sheet of textile fixed onto the form with Velcro. he chairs construction is ‘stitch less’. The cover is fix and available in selected fabrics.
