Hardie stool11. May2012
The Hardie stools have been designed in commission for Kvadrat and will be part of the Kvadrat Hallingdal 65 exhibition, which will début during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2012 in the Jil Sander showroom.
The exhibition will tour around the world after the fair and the participation of Phillipe Malouin will be curated by Ilse Crawford.
"We set out to design a range of stools and chairs that uses Hallingdal fabric as its main material, therefore doing without the usual structural elements. As these rolled fabric tubes are very soft when they are just rolled, we need to place them in wooden molds for the resin to cure and become solid. The seam is hand-stitched, while the creases in the stool's bends reveal its origin and process. The result is a series of stools that use the same piece of fabric from the inside to the outside, for its structure and for its finish. The Kvadrat stool is light and playful, warm and tactile"
