Akira Ishikawa: Knitted Eames Chair

Akira Ishikawa: Knitted Eames Chair

It’s true that mid-century design aesthetics are as popular as ever with their apparently timeless modern style, clean lines, and simple beauty. But designers always see room for improvement and here’s one option. By employing basic knitting and weaving techniques, these wire frame chairs become comfy icons of the DIY generation, maintaining their clean style but adding a little handmade character that we miss all too often in today’s mass-produced manufactured goods. These chairs were knitted by Noriko of Plain Living and styled by Akira Ishikawa for Tokyo CultuArt by Beams.
