For the last post of this first week back, I'm keeping it Scandanvian.
So today I'm looking at the Blush chair by Danish Designer, Sofie Brünner
This glorious creation is a unique lounge chair that aims at stimulating the senses.
Working from the concept of haptic* design (design that stimulate the sense of touch), BLUSH has a contrasting and playful appearance that invites the user to explore the materials, construction and comfortability.
The chair consists of a faceted hard aluminium shell in which a perforated pattern has been laser-cut. Using a brush binding technique, the holes are upholstered with strips of hand printed felt. This results in a soft and tactile front upholstery and a pixel-like upholstered back.
With the delicate rose colours, the whole chair looks like it is in blushing bloom...
Sofie's background counts a bachelor degree in textile design from Central Saint Martins, a master degree in spatial and furniture design from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.
She is passionate about tactile sensuosness - "People should feel the urge to touch and feel. They should want to figure out how my furniture has been constructed. The furniture should tell a story. That is why I love working with differents materials."
I would happily have one of these in every room in The Palace
(*It's funny how everything in The Kingdom comes back to music! Haptic design is a trend to watch in 2014 but every time I read the word 'Haptic', I think of the techno night that used to be run by our friend Gianni. Oh my, but we had some great nights out at Haptic...)
