Crop has used seemingly scrap materials to design an armchair-pouf consisting of two elements, a donut and a pompom which can be used together or separately. A ball of tufted wool along with hand stitching and twisting strips of wool fabric, linen and cotton has resulted in this rainbow coloured unique armchair.
It is a large armchair-pouf, produced entirely by hand stitching and twisting strips of wool fabric, linen and cotton. The creation was inspired by the technique of wool pompoms, proposed here in an oversized version. An alternative seating, light though slightly large, to be located in any atmosphere and strictly covered in natural yarns.
In this case the wool is obtained from the recycling of 2700 m. of selvages, waste material from the textile production. The seating consists of two elements: a donut and a pompom, which can be used together or separately, depending on the different usage, assembled by simple insertion.
The project was awarded at the international competition ‘Ethics of living, aesthetics of living’; the prototypes were made with the assistance of Cecchi & Cecchi and Formitalia Group spa.
The project is currently owned by con3studio.
Nuances available in red (red, burgundy, purple, beige), blue (azure, blue, gray, black), neutral (white, beige, gray, black). The colour is subject to change depending on the availability of materials. Being a handmade product and made from scrap fabrics each piece is unique.
