MCesChair by Helmut Palla

All of a sudden this chair came along on Helmut Palla‘s FaceBook timeline where he put it somewhere in 2013. Part Escher (its name is MCesChair, after M.C. Escher), but also part Rietveld this time and maybe Helmut didn’t think of Rietveld’s Steltman Chair. And a bit of Steffen Kehrle as well.

Stretch Lounge by Michelle Dunbar

This industrially knit fabric was created to respond to human interaction and physically change when sat upon. The tubes expand and reveal a hidden color as the chair flexes to support weight. This dual seater was created in collaboration with Mayela Mujica MFA Furniture 2016. This chair will be exhibited at both the XXI Triennale International Exhibition Milan 2016 as a part of the Milan Furniture Fair and ICFF in New York.

Sinuous Chair by Noelle Antignano

Via Design Milk I found a couple of chairs designed by students of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) 2016 design class.

This Sinuous Chair was designed by Noelle Antignano. It has a simple metal frame that is filled with lushy upholstery rolls weaved through it. A bit like Eleonore Nalet‘s Serpentine Chair. See also this post.
