The Mummy chair is exactly what the name says, a regular wooden chair covered by a light polyurethane layer and wrapped with a large elastic band. Designed by Peter Traag, the work of this Dutch designer often starts from challenging manufacturing processes; and is probably safe to say he was exploring his way into simplifying upholstery techniques when he came up with the wrapping solution.
