Skin Chair

Foam, wood, custom upholstery
45 x 90 x 50 cm. (W x H x D)

︎Created at the Santoni Pioneer Program with production support from Hanbing Liu. By accessing the unique tubular knitting technology from Santoni, we are able to create a one-of-kind fabric that is seamless and has a sense of 3D volume. The fabric acts as a skin to the chair by covering it, and the bumpy muscle pattern of the fabric become the ornaments of the chair and therefore visually alter the shape of it. It is inspired by the concept of displacement texture from the 3D content creation, and this is our attempt to sculpt an object in the real world with the digital approach.
