The principle was inspired by composite materials, a combination between bonding and structural materials, similar to how we reinforce concrete or the ancient cob set from mud and straw.
We presented the collection at the FAT Galerie Paris, which included seven prototypes made out of 326 meters of felt in total.
The series showcases the different possibilities provided by the technique. The stools show how the felt acts as upholstery while the silicone maintains the structure. The table prefers its silicone structure to be inside in order to support a wooden plate. The chair draws a sculptural and organic shape that models the shape the human body. Conversely the rug isn’t coiled but meanders in a long serpentine where the silicone is seen as connection between felt and floor.
