Vermelha Chair, 500 meters of rope
Published on June 5, 2015
500 meters of special rope. A week of work. High specialization. They are all needed to create this wrap-around chair with aluminum and steel frame, and manual weaving of the rope directly onto the frame. The unique padding is created by progressive overlapping of hundreds of abundant twines on the frame.
The ability of experienced hands to weave this rope with acrylic core and cotton cover is fundamental. It takes more than forty-five hours of work just for the weaving.
500 meeters of rope create the volume of the chair. The casing is woven directly onto the structure of painted tubular steel, which in turn is secured to the legs of solid aluminum. Subsequent layers of twine create a sort of padding.
