It reflects a study of the passage from two to three dimensions based on observing the tanning of a quadruped’s hide. This taut skin evokes memories of the animal it once was. The same skin, pleated, gives us the three-dimensionality of a chair or armchair. The structure is a hexagonal network inspired by molecular geometry or a snowflake. The natural form of a skin for the chair’s upholstery. The rigorous geometry of Nature for its structure. Like the Inuit peoples who wear animal skins for protection, Nanook’s technical-fabric upholstery has tribal echoes. The pleated, three-dimensional skin is transformed into a contemporary object through the use of digital printing for the upholstery, and moulded synthetic material for the structure. Nanook seating – whose name derives from the protagonist of the first nature documentary in film history – preserves tribal memories while looking to the future and to technology with the same optimism with which Nanook observed his icy environment.”
