Swedish design student Annika Göransson has sent us her latest creation, the Mosaiik lounge chair, which she’s exhibited at the Stockholm furniture fair. The Mosaiik chair is a lounge chair where a metal grid makes up the making of the shell.
The grid also serves as a framework for the up holstering. Inspired from the structure of corncobs and sunflower buds the upholstery is created out of 297 foam cubes. The cubes are spread and packed with the curving in the seat. By pressing the cubes through a wool fabric a smooth surface is generated on top while a rough structure forms in the back.
By leaving the rear uncovered, the consumer can feel the different structures created by the upholstering method and also acquire an awareness of the way the seat is built. The simple silhuette of Mosaiik is complemented by a pattern that emphasize the square part of the furniture. The ultimate outcome is a lounge chair created by a mosaic of soft cubes.
