by Carnevale Studio (i.e. American designer Jessica Carnevale) is a collection of chairs inspired by the puffy jacket.
Neon silks, satins and synthetics were filled with enough down and foam to make the pieces look and feel somehow inflated.
They are almost entirely upholstered, absorbed and enveloped. Only the dining chair’s structure is still just visible, and the fabric appears to be still expanding.
So it is not inflated upholstery what you see!
It was featured at Ventura Lambrate’s 2012 edition.
Jessica Carnevale is an American designer who studied industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Stretch is her debut collection.
With “Stretch”, Jessica brings the exuberance of the fashion world into her designs, mixing textures, materials and patterns. She experimented with a number of different materials before choosing latex, bungee and rope for their bright colors and wondrous elasticity which provides a comfortable and flexible seating surface. Built by Jessica in her studio in Brooklyn she made a simple, artful chair to better frame the compositions that she created. The result is a collection of three vivid pieces which work beautifully on their own but are so much more fun mixed and matched – in your choice of combinations.
