Description from Joinery
WEND is an Oakland, California based design studio that aims to marry the traditional Indonesian craft of hand weaving with a distinctly Californian aesthetic. Their products are a collaboration between designers Michelle Plante and Genevieve Bandrowski, and a family of weavers in Java, Indonesia. Their process is physical: they design on paper, source hand-foraged sustainable rattan, and weave in small batches – no two chairs are exactly alike.
The Ring Chair, with its open weave design and modern shape was created with laid back, resort-style living in mind. We collaborated with a talented designer from the North shore of Java in Indonesia to give this classic material a fresh update. Made entirely of sustainable rattan, the Ring chair is our modern reinterpretation of a classic 1960’s French design. This contemporary chair marries traditional weaving technique with a modern silhouette. Each piece is made of natural materials, strips of rattan are hand-woven around pole rattan to create a piece that is both sculptural and comfortable. Each traditionally woven chair takes several days to weave, made start to finish in a fair trade environment.
