FF1 is an indoor lounge chair made of synthetic felt 1 square sheet. There is is not a loss of material (with the exception of the drilled holes), it’s not supported with wood or metal, or other. The structure is self-supporting, the flax pulls the chair together and keep it off aesthetically. The shell and base are not separated from the leaf, but remain connected. Left of a square, the board felt twisted and turned back, like a scarf, ending in a symmetrical but also asymmetrical object, this is literally form follows function
