Saw this Bistro Light by Ditte Hammerstroem in the Design Museum Danmark in Copenhagen. You can see the foam getting yellower when time passes.
A sofa that turns itself inside out. The upholstery has been peeled off, turning the bared innards into the face of the furniture. Strips of foam that are woven around the structure explore new upholstery techniques and elevate an anonymous material that we usually keep out of sight. From hidden stuffing to visible surface.
Hm I would call it a settee rather than a sofa…and you?
Surfing a couple of Danish designers I remembered that I had taken a photo of the Bistro Light Chair by Ditte Hammerstroem myself in London at 100% Design 2008. And the side view I didn’t show earlier. All as a prelude to more work from her.
Upholstered chair with slightly distorted proportions, which enable new ways of using the chair. The chairs are industrially made but because of the upholstery process each chair becomes unique. Limited edition.
Quote from DesignBoom: ‘Wrinkle’ by Ditte Hammerstroem
‘Wrinkle’ is a seating line developed by young danish designer Ditte Hammerstroem. The collection features two love seats that have the same simple structure and rather ornate upholstery. The fabric is stretched over the center of the piece and then made to appear as if it is tied to the legs. gathering of the fabric near the edge creates even more texture. each sofa has a slightly different style,
but both are equally as dramatic.
Another Danish designer who will participate in the exhibition Mindcraft, is Ditte Hammerstroem. further details on the mindcraft show can be found here.
