blush and bloom...
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...)
