Fox & Freeze FF1 Lounge Chair

What is rule number one when you've made
your own chair?
This of course!

I have a confession. There is one material I love. Felt. Not only does it have a great look and tactile feel, it’s structural properties are extremely interesting; lightweight, sturdy, malleable -all things designers typically drool over. Belgian design-duo James Van Vossel and Tom de Vrieze, through their creative coop Fox & Freeze, have created an ingenious indoor lounge chair set to rival the Fat Boy you’ve got in your living room. Made from a single square sheet of synthetic felt, the FF1 Chair is entirely self-supporting, with only a flax rope added for aesthetic purposes. Surprisingly sturdy (strong enough to jump on), the twisting of the felt flows together to create the seat & base.
