KNOTTED CHAIR

Marcel Wanders

1996

The iconic Knotted Chair is a brilliant adult interpretation of the tiny chairs used to decorate a doll’s house, a visionary creation by designer Marcel Wanders. This project has been officially consecrated by earning a place in the permanent collections of the MoMA in New York, the V&A Museum in London and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

By eliminating the distinction between artisanship and industrial production, Wanders has turned this chair into work of art to be cherished in the home and integrated into our daily lives.

The macramé technique that inspired the design of the Knotted Chair has been revisited in a surprising structure made of carbon covered with aramide fibre cord and then coated with epoxy resin. Thus, an innovative object was born, with an intrinsically romantic allure: a collector’s piece, utterly unique in the history of international design.
