The loopiest design from milan 2011.
Born from a love of tufting, Danish furniture designer Sophie de Vocht’s “Loop Chaise Lounge” takes a technique typically reserved for carpeting and applies it to seating instead. Bright, playful and overwhelmingly tactile, de Vocht’s lounge chair practically begs to be touched and, of course, lounged upon.
To create it, de Vocht wove over-sized yarn through a metal frame, tufting it tightly on the back rest and loosening (and brightening) it up along the length of the chair until it fans out and acts as a sort of carpet/ottoman.
Oftentimes really innovative furniture is a pleasure to behold and admire form afar, but actually using it can be an uncomfortable prospect. Clearly, that’s not the case here. The “Loop Chaise Lounge” is as inviting as a pile of freshly raked autumn leaves, waiting to pounced upon or curled up in. See other examples at salone internazionale del mobile
