Concept

“‘Cradle’ is a unique blend of two typologies of seating – a net structured hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair.

The chair stems from the studio’s materials driven, process led, industrial design approach, research into the construction of mesh materials, and a study of the relationships between traditional seating components.

‘Cradle’ utilizes a custom-made cut pattern that allows a non-elastic textile to perform in a three dimensional way. This allows for the correct tension to comfortably support the body and both visually and physically reduces the product’s weight.”
