Green Week: The Knit Chair by Emiliano Godoy
The Knit Chair by Emiliano Godoy has been around a couple of years, but its design doesn’t cease to amaze me. The chair is made from two things: thin wood panels and cotton rope. The chair amazingly keeps its shape, even with its incredible thinness. The key to the chair, really, is the shape of the beehive-like wood pieces that lock together and give it structure. The chair uses sustainable wood and organic cotton rope, so the piece is about as natural as you can get. I guess my favorite aspect of the chair is its shape. It’s a bit like a cradle or a glove. And, when you sit down in it, the chair sort of nestles you in as the weight of your body alters the shape of the chair.
