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.
