Berlin-based product designers Anastasiya Koshcheeva and Oya-Meryem Yanik teamed up on a project that is a study in materials. Chester is a new, innovative material that looks at molded wood in a completely new way. After much research, they created a new surface material that’s held together with seams, and not the typical glue, giving the wood a quilted look.
The stitching not only adds decorative detail to whatever it’s covering, in this case a stool, it adds a bit of cushioning. The material can by used by itself or applied to plywood.
