Concept

The easy chair Fly is designed by Patrick Norguet. A first glance at Fly makes one think of the Far East, and Norguet compares the shape of the chair to the helmet worn by Japanese samurai. Fly has an organic design language in which the fabric itself creates much of the shape by being stretched over the metal frame. Because very little energy is used to make the fabric, Fly meets Offecct’s high demands for sustainable production. Offecct and Patrick Norguet worked on the project for four years before the right technology to produce the chair was found.

“It is really not a complicated design. What was difficult was to find a manufacturer who could make the technical textile with the minimum possible environmental impact“, says Patrick Norguet.
