The weave, the central motif, is attached to a wooden frame that follows the body line in a resting position.
The resting surface is woven from non-woven textile, felt, and wooden slats. This creates a structure strong enough to withstand the load, flexible enough to provide much-needed comfort. Flexibility is created by slats transversely placed in a wooden frame, connected by textiles that fasten with strategic perforations. By inverting the rhythm of perforations in the rows, a surface is created in which the combined materials additionally strengthen each other. At the same time, changing the material in the rhythm of weaving creates a pattern, a visual matrix of alternating lines in colour and texture.
“During the work on the tambour door, we noticed that the structure has grateful elastic properties and is suitable for the design of the deck chair. A minimal construction for relaxation has been developed around this principle. We are fascinated by the expressive character of the whole deckchair, and especially by the surface of interwoven elements whose structure is suggestive and reminiscent of ethnic moments in contemporary interpretation.”
