We have tried extreme sewing technology the past years, says Fredrik and Emma jointly, not at least in the Emma armchair for Gärsnäs where the stich was part of the construction. Now we have gone even further by reducing everything, only a shell of wood with the sewing as pattern generator and a structural element.
Wood Tailoring employs sewing machine to stitch directly on to the wood in order to join different parts together while at the same time creating patterns which has an aesthetic of their own. Layer on layer of thick plywood is stitched together to make the Wood Layer Armchair, and where the sewing presents a topographical map with an organic pattern that resembles the growth of wood.
Sewing is usually seen as something, which has to do with soft materials. We use our heavy-duty sewing machines to sew in wood. And, yes, it's a raw poetry that fuses the hand-made with the industrial.
Wood Tailoring is a new technology, which explores radical new possibilities in the joining of parts in furniture. The first products are the Wood Layer Armchair, the Bespoke Chair and the Pocket Cupboard, all to be presented at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
WOOD LAYER ARMCHAIR
An armchair where layer of plywood are stitched together. The stich resembles a topographic map with an organic pattern, which resembles a sort of wood growth on the back of the armchair. The same pattern reappears on the front part with its upholstery.
