The Chill Chair meets Jute - Zigmund Pront in collaboration with Alexander Marinus
The Chill Chair is designed by Zigmund Pront, the alter ego of the Brussels design duo Annelies Veys and Britt Pevernagie. The Chill Chair reflects the tension between nature and nurture. The steel of the Chill Chair recalls the strong character of the wild and the uncut. The two elements of the chair keep each other in balance. The way these elements are folded, determines their internal force. The chair slowly bends in an organic way along with the body it carries, or merely by the blowing of the wind.
These chairs chill and cradle. They wobble and waggle. They rock.
‘Hey Jute’, by Alexander Marinus showcases the benefits of the raw fibre of jute. Marinus aims to change the perception and appreciation of jute in textiles. He uses the full properties of the raw jute fibres in their pure state, preferably the light coloured thin fibres.
When the raw material has so much to offer, it’s time more people wake up to its value.
