Rib Chair

Rib Chair


Donated by 18 Watt

A stacking chair in pressed felt. The first ideas concerning Rib grew out of a thought of a stacking chair with a strong graphic touch. Very soon I decided about the billowing seat then for a long while I looked around for the right material to use. The choice of felt gives Rib a unique character. Also the making of the chair makes it special as the stand is mounted underneath, within the felt material. Rib was awarded Best in Show, Forum +1 at the Stockholm furniture fair 2009 and “Best of the Best” at 100%design in Rotterdam 2009.
