at this year’s cabinetmakers’ autumn exhibition, copenhagen-based cabinetmaker kevin hviid, in collaboration with GANNI, presents his colorful three meter high hanging couch in an effort to promote positive human interactions in the shared space of public parks and city squares. iris, hviid’s project, is developed around an iron structure and 600 manually installed multi-colored nylon bands with a focus on strings and lines.

kevin hviid‘s project for ganni is a piece of furniture with curves, character and sharp elbows. iris’ ‘skirts’ swings and sways as it brings one, two or more people back and forth in its arms. additionally, the chair offers room and time for reflection by providing a sheltered intimate space for user. ‘my design is a story-telling space, which is something GANNI manages as well,’ explains the artist. the iris chair is currently displayed at the national design museum of denmark.
