Jumper chair by Bertjan Pot

Jumper chair was launched by Established & Sons in Milan last week. I felt enchanted the first moment I saw the photos. The woolen surface seems warm and invites to touch it. The concept was created by Dutch designer Bertjan Pot.

"Jumper consists of one continuous oversized woolen knitted cover, with qualities very much like that of a jumper, including buttons that fix the cover together on the underside of the chair, once the knitted cover is wrapped over the solid wooden structure and bent steel legs. The cover is knitted on a ‘Knit and Wear’ machine that is skilled for clothing garments, but this is where the fashion and design production processes divide. Once the garment is completed it is then run through a high degree wash to attain a seamless and upholstered effect eradicating most of the stretch from the wool but presenting a high quality fabric that layers the structure with precision and rigor."

  1. Ten materiał jest cudownie skarpetkowy :)W ogóle krzesło wygląda jak bohater kreskówki, np. mebel jakiegoś Fraglesa.

  2. Wiesz co, nieźle mnie rozśmieszył twój komentarz... Rzeczywiście, skojarzenie z Fraglesami jest trafne, nie wiem dlaczego :)
