Industrial Upholstery

Gilli Kuchik explores the industrializing opportunities of upholstery, with very interesting results.

I'm not in love with the final shape and the proportions of this chair, but the idea is simply brilliant. 
Upholstery is a technique that hasn't changed much with time and remains a highly handicraft process. Gilli Kuchik from Israeli design group Bakery explores the opportunities of industrializing upholstery and comes up with a fantastic idea where structure and upholstery become one. The textile is arranged in layers, which are sewn with each other creating a pattern that is also a path; the interstitials in fact are filled with different density polyurethane that structures the chair body and donates the needed softness.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
