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


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, resistant against fire and moisture and acts as a natural insulator to noise.

About The Maker

Charlotte Kingsnorth

View Profile
Born and raised in London in 1985, Charlotte Kingsnorth is an industrial artist, melding together the practical and the fantastical. She uses her work to narrate the world as she sees it, conjuring up thought provoking ideas which push accepted values and boundaries. The objects she produces demonstrate her preoccupation in materiality and biomorphic forms.  Charlotte studied at Buckinghamshire University in 2006 Contemporary Furniture and Product Design. In 2012 she graduated from the Royal College of Art, where she studied Design Products under Tord Boontje. Charlotte set up Charlotte Kingsnorth Studio in 2013 and has since worked with clients including Bill Gates, Fendi, SHOWstudio, Ampersand, Christies, and continues to develop work which is widely acclaimed, published and exhibited internationally.
