What do you do when your chair wears out or the cat destroys it? Or if you just get tired of it? MocoLoco show us Chair Wear, in which the designers ask: "Why buy a new chair when you can dress up the one you have?"
The designer, Bernotat&Co, explains how it is a different way of looking at upholstery, sort of clothing for chairs.
Chair Wear started as a mildly ironical joke, and ended up in a very inspiring new way of looking at furniture upholstery, of seeing it as a separate item, leading to new constructions, productions techniques and materials.
The Hoodini is flexible and practical:
The multifunctional Hoodini - baggy storage space when hanging over the back of the chair and a privacy screen when pulled over the sitter's head like a hood.
Knit-Net, essentially a chair cushion, it's made of specially developed 3D knitwear inspired by the protective foam net packaging of expensive apples.
