The Loom Chair is Rendered Sittable Thanks to a Woven Cord

The basic structure of the Loom Chair is quite simply a frame of wooden dowels. The seat and the backrest are merely suggested by the timber composition before the defining secondary material is incorporated.

For each handmade model of the lounger, designer Laura Carwardine takes a single lengthy segment of rope and ties it to a back corner. She proceeds to wind, loop and coil it around four different horizontal rods in a crisscrossing form, gradually entwining a springing stringed seat. Mimicking the cloth-making technique of an old weaving apparatus on an enlarged scale, the Loom Chair is rendered even sturdier by the cord and provides a comfortable place to sit with a bit of flexibility behind its charming crafty appearance.
