KNOTTED CHAIR CHAIR
—Designed by Marcel Wanders
This contemporary chair is light, airy, and reminiscent of that classic summertime hammock. It reminds me of the macramé projects I used to make in the 70's—cleverly knotting rope around old wine bottles. The chair combines the same sort of nifty knot tying along with a cool industrial technique. Aramid and carbon fibers are combined together to make thick thread or rope that is then knotted into the shape of a chair. I suspect there are some wires involved as a base. Then the chair is dipped into an epoxy resin, and hung out to dry. The final form is created by gravity. It should be called the Sir Isaac Newton chair.
