Description from Marcel Wanders
This lightweight chair combines industrial techniques and handcrafting. A thread constructed of aramid and carbon fibres, is knotted into the shape of a chair and then impregnated with epoxy resin and hung in a frame to dry, leaving the final form in the hands of gravity. The Knotted Chair was a result of Droog’s 1996 Dry Tech I project.
Designed 1996, produced by Cappellini. They stopped producing the chair in 2011 (after a 1000 of them were made) and since then it has been part of the Personal Editions collection. The Knotted Chair sits within the perminant collections of such museums as the V&A London, MoMA NY and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
