"Hi!breed", Bespoke Chair with Biomorphic Upholstery on Vintage Chair Frame



Squishy Thonet II is a continuation of the Hi!breed family. This is a bench made up from two old Thonet bentwood chairs enveloped with plump upholstery. Acid green silk velvet encases the form, which is all hand stitched. The chairs have a solid internal structure joining them together. This is an art piece for occasional seating.
