Description

The Felt Collection is a collaboration with two regional premium Merino wool manufacturers, one based in Toronto and the other in Upstate New York, as well as Toronto metal manufacturers and computer programmers. STACKLAB identified surplus off-cut and end-of-bolt felted wool that, when stored, occupy significant factory space for these manufacturers. In turn, they designed a computer aided system that makes productive (re)use of the off-cuts and end-of-bolt felt in the form of household furnishings. The collection includes benches, stools, side tables, and chairs. The Felt Collection has a distinct form logic that is unabashedly linked to efficiency and re-use.

STACKLAB is dedicated to creating works that address relevant environmental, social, and economic issues. The Felt Collection is one of their many ongoing case studies that identify inherent inefficiencies in regional manufacturing methods and provide a use scenario for waste products.

STACKLAB’s goal is to contribute to the industry by looking critically at how things are made, offer strategic initiatives that result in better efficiency, and expand material life cycles and market opportunities.

About STACKLAB Visit Showroom →

STACKLAB is a multi-disciplinary design practice based in Toronto. Through its products and projects, the studio aims to provoke meaningful discourse about our ways of living. Founded by Jeff Forrest in 2013, STACKLAB is known for its innovative blend of design, tech and circular manufacturing. Rather than work backwards from the desired output, such as a new chair or a home, the team applies a diverse set of skills and perspectives to problems worth solving. With a particular passion for the challenges facing regional manufacturing, the studio believes that the key to smarter, more efficient and better-for-the-environment living is its signature systems-based approach. Taking inspiration from the technology ‘stack’, which leverages existing technologies, infrastructures and skills to create iterative, holistic solutions, STACKLAB’s regional network of experts in science and craft enables cross-pollination throughout the process. Oftentimes with the aid of an algorithm, every step is optimized to ensure it does the maximum with the minimum; opening up opportunities for material upcycling, waste reduction and alternate scenarios for reuse. STACKLAB strongly believes in design as a vehicle for critical thinking. The team approaches every problem without bias toward a particular method or medium to maintain its focus on impact. Their output might therefore be described as a container for new ideas; the result of a rigorous process in pursuit of the best solution.
