pompon chair by con3studio

italian con3studio have sent in images of their recent project ‘pompon’. using the pompon technique they created the lightweight chair; it is made from ‘oversize’ yarn obtained from recycled waste produced by the textile industry. the seat consists of two elements: a ring and a pompon that can be used together or separately, according to the different ways they can be assembled by simple insertion.
