INFO / The Little Fellow Chair is an exploration in unusual materials and innovative ways of upholstering. The designers intention was to create an object that affects people in a profound, unique and personal way, which makes the viewer want to touch and explore the object. The name Little Fellow refers to the similarities to a distinguished little friend.
The frame is covered in thick nautic rope, which makes all surfaces textured and warm, while making the chair appear as if it was ”made entirely of rope”. This concept is also used in creating the seat pad. Constructed with a traditional brush binding technique, the upholstery of the seat consists of a few centimeter long pieces of rope-ends pulled into a grid of holes in the timber seat. The rope-ends can be exchanged and different colours added to create patterns. This construction allows for client customisation and personality, while it expresses a wonderful tactile sensation.
