sophie de vocht: loop chaise lounge for casamania

‘loop chaise lounge’ was born from dutch designer sophie de vocht‘s interest in the ‘tufting’ technique, typically used for making carpets, is characterized by a high number of tufts of yarn inserted through needles on a fabric base.

designed for italian furniture company casamania, the chair features a metal structure in which ‘over-sized yarn’ is woven through to create a softness. the main base and seat are tightly woven, gradually getting looser in their stitching along the length of the chaise lounge, eventually fanning out over the floor making it an object that stands between carpet and furniture.

the chair is part of the company’s new collection and was on show at the fairgrounds during milan design week 2011.
