Spacer Chair

A soft and open mesh fabric turns into a spacious chair by a synthesis of constructive folding and hardening. Inspired by the carpet production process, Studio Samira Boon designed the chair based on the same principles: two pieces of fabric are partly interwoven and partly separated.

Folding the fabric turns the two-dimensional cloth into a three-dimensional object. The chair derives its strength from both the double fabric and the curves: hardening 3-dimensional fabrics by means of resins gives them constructive qualities.

This Dry Tech 3 project was carried out by Studio Samira Boon in collaboration with the TU Delft Aerospace faculty, Droog Design and Next architects.
