Description originale

The solid/surface/series collection remasters the art of sculpting using digital fabrication and solid, rapidly renewable materials. Upholstery, foam products and finishes are all supplanted with thick sheets of natural wool felt, adhered with non-toxic, water-based adhesives. The precision-cut contours of each piece of felt are aggregated into sinuous yet comfortable forms. The cascading edges create an integral pattern with both a visual and tactile effect.

The Relief Chair's contours invite the user to sit back and relax. The body of the chair is a layered assembly of medium-density wool felt sheets, adhered to each other and sleeved over an internal steel frame. The felt body and frame rest on break-formed stainless steel legs, with a satin finish. The composition juxtaposes weight and weightlessness with an intrepid stance. The chair makes a statement in any room or lounge.

The scraps of felt generated during fabrication are reused in other Mickus Projects pieces, such as the Refill Pillow.

    c’est attrayant,écologique, original( bien que les systèmes créatif et productif ait été déjà developpés ds d’autres meubles bois par des designers hollandais)mais c’est probablement inconfortable et inabordable sans être vraiment de l’art design…
