FF1 Chair by Fox & Freeze

Fox & Freeze is a creative cooperation between two Belgian designers, James van Vossel and Tom de Vrieze, which began in October 2009. Their first project is called FF1, or Fox & Freeze 1. It is an indoor lounge chair made of one square sheet of synthetic felt.

There is no loss of material (except from the drilled holes), it is not supported with wood or metal or another material; the structure is self-supporting. The flax rope contracts the chair and finishes the chair aesthetically. The shell and base are not separated from the sheet but remain connected.

Starting from a square surface, the felt sheet is twisted and twisted again, just like a scarf, ending in a symmetric and but also an asymmetric object, this is literally forms follows function. Click on the photo gallery below to see the process.

The FF1 Chair is available or sale through the Fox & Freeze webshop.
