The MSL 35 Chair might look a bit like a bucket seat, but clearly that is simply found in its silhouette. Other than that, its cutout design is rather unique. This is due in large part to being inspired by the work of wicker baskets. The designer, Mads Saetter-Lassen, elaborates, "[T]he appearance of the chair’s shell is the result of investigating the potential of veneer for wicker work – i.e. of using a non-textile material in a textile way."
Created as part of The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Designs contribution to the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013, the MSL 35 Chair was sponsored by Optimera and Danskmøbeldesign.dk. The sculptural design is made out of Elm wood, steel and wool, which certainly gives it a lot of texture.
