Jennie Adén and Hanna Stenström for Materia. Taking as our starting point the public domain in the form of entrances, museums and lobbies, a large and magnificent item of furniture has developed. By designing this large, organic item we have also been able to emphasize the fact that Materia are such experts at needlework.
Rapid experimentation with textile fabrics early in the process ultimately resulted in a design that was like a fortune cookie. With inspiration from the fortune cookie we have experimented with scale and form, both physically and using 3-D programming to create the armchair that we have constantly envisaged. As a final detail we have strengthened the sense of it being a fortune cookie by giving it an overly large message.
