Fredrik Färg’s “slow fashion” furniture.
Also too good not to share… I’m a huge fan of the (gorgeous) final products and of the impressively low-waste process. From the designer’s website:
RE:cover – Bespoke dresses for old chairs.
“The project looks to the beauty of those shapes that never change. Fredrik takes his inspiration from classic tailoring, such as suits and dinner jackets that never go out of style. By using old chairs from flea markets and removing the backrest, replacing it with a new textile dress/structure of mouldable polyester felt, he is creating “slow fashion” furniture, giving the old chairs a new glance.”
These extremely unique and, understandably, limited edition chairs are by Studio Fredrik Färg. They are created from finding existing chairs and giving them “a new cover of 100% recyclable polyester felt.”
To see another great low-waste chair design – coincidentally also in felt – check out Fox & Freeze‘s ff1 chair.
March 14’s daily design idea is recycling is sexy.
