MARCEL WANDERS: THE CROCHET TABLE AND CHAIR

I really love this design, designed by Marcel Wanders. The Crochet Chair was designed for the Smart Deco project, presented by Droog Design and Barry Friedman Ltd. at Art Basel Miami in 2006. The Crochet Chair is produced in a limited edition of 20 pieces, which is sold out.
The Crochet Chair, Crochet Table and Crochet Light are all part of Marcel Wanders playful vision on this traditional means of decorating. The elegant molded shape and fascinating crochet details of the Crochet Collection are made from white cotton and coated with epoxy resin. Eccentric and talented, the designer played with individually hand-sewn crochet flowers to shape different items that are hollow on the inside, creating the extraordinary feeling of an elegant ghost chair. This collection offers new applications for traditional crochet, enlarging the decorative possibilities of this beautiful art. Apparently even Jay-Z and Beyonce have one of these beautiful furniture items – the Crochet Chair by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, for which it is rumored to have paid $40K. The interesting piece of furniture was bought by the famous couple during a private tour of a design exhibition in Miami.
