The Bommel collection by MYK is entirely crafted by hand. Several hundred wool threads are bundled, rolled, tied and cut to be made into pom poms of various sizes, and each piece of the collection is made of up to 1300 of such woolen balls. The amount calls for about 45 kilos of wool for a single furniture object!
MYK was set up in 2009 by the academically qualified fashion designer Myra Klose. She studied fashion design at Trier and Madrid universities ( 1992 – 1996 ) and has since been working professionally in Austria and Germany.
The Salon Armchair by Lee Broom is made of sumptuous fabric that is accentuated with stud detailing. The design was inspired by the curvaceous lines of 1930s upholstery so the finished result “echoes the iconic designs of luxury fashion accessories and punk rock couture”.
