Modern "Babafelt Chair" with Walnut Timber Base and Thick Natural Wool Felt Seat

$10,235.14 per item

About

Babafelt is an easy chair made from thick natural wool felt. The felt sheet is cut and folded to make a cocoon-like space in which to sit, which responds to the occupants’ movements and hugs them as they lean back. The wooden frame is made by traditional British craftsman who masterfully shape the walnut timber and steam bend the legs to follow the natural curve of the felt. Felt is a high tech ecological material which comes from a low tech renewable source. The felt is made from high quality wool fibres which are mechanically pressed using heat, moisture and pressure. The outcome is long lasting, naturally resistant against fire and moisture and acts as an insulator to noise.
