Description

Aluminium Chair by Charles and Ray Eames designed in 1958, transformed using traditional textile techniques. Vitra’s great achievement has been bringing the office to the home and taking the home to the office and we wanted the project to materialize that concept through a subtle intervention while generating a strong visual impact. As a sign of respect to the chair, it has had a non-aggressive and reversible intervention by simply passing a needle through the holes of its standard, net weaved fabric, leaving its trace in the form of a Victorian petit point flower. Two icons clashing to bring to life the concept of the manufacturer of the chair.

The ornamentation of the chair is done stitch by stitch, completely by hand by a professional weaver, challenging our preconceptions and accentuating our impression of just how much hand labour and how much industry is really applied to what we understand as an industrial object.

About the designer

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
