French designer duo Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec design the Rope Chair for Finnish furniture brand Artek.
More like a silhouette than a solid block, the Rope Chair is a line drawing translated into three dimensions. Available in black or grey, Rope Chair has a steel tubing frame and a seat made of form-pressed beech plywood and ash veneer. Its most prominent feature – the rope – is made of black polyester or natural flax, depending on colour version. Made for marine use, the rope is at the heart of the chair’s unexpected comfort; a weight-bearing part of the construction, it allows the chair to adapt to those who use it.
