description

The Knotted chair was one of Marcel Wanders’ first designs; an experimental seat the links aspects, methods, and materials in a conflicting and surprising innovation.
The chair is made through an artisanal process of knotting based on macramé. However, for its fabrication carbon fiber is used instead of textile fibers. To achieve its shape, the loose threads are impregnated with epoxy and hung from a frame in order to be hardened.
