French designer Inga Sempé will present this ash Österlen chair for Swedish brand Gärsnäs at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in Sweden next week.
Called Österlen, the chair has slices cut out of the bent back and round legs to make a comfortable backrest, create neat joints with the square plywood seat and sharpen the line of the legs.

RE: cover (a Chair) or Dress a chair well by Fredrik Farg
RE:cover – costume making dresses for old chairs.
The project looks to the beauty of those shapes that not always have to change. Fredrik is inspired by classic menswear, such as suits and dinner jackets that never go out of style. -This is a lasting fashion; he says and refers to today's trend wear which is often discarded before being worn out.
I found this on Fredrik’s Picasa photo set Stockholm Furniture Fair 2009.
Stockholm Design Week 2008: Greenhouse Results from this year’s Fantasy Project
at the Lund Institute of Technology where students first create a fictive client or character and then design a chair or lamp matching its characteristics.
