Tord Boontje for Moroso: Doll Chair

The Doll Chair was designed by Boontje in 2005 with the idea that you could dress / undress your furniture. Seeing it in this “outfit” and in person at the Moroso showroom in Milan gave me a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the textile, which is actually my favorite part of this design. The burnout technique gives the sheer / opaque effect but what I really love is the sort-of digital approach to the floral design which becomes tangled and then sorts itself out again.  Also the colors, orange-y red with white + gray, are a modern and sophisticated choice for this design.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a sheer on a chair before. Things are getting crazy here!
