Flour Fellow: Kyssen – design by Johanna Hansson and print by Carina Nibér

July 6th, 2011 - 
 

Johanna Hansson graduated in 2008 in Malmö, at the Production and Design school. She works in furniture and interior design at Berhin Studios. The Flour Fellow design below is one of her first green furniture products. As about Carina Niber, she is an artist that prefers to paint in oil on large sizes canvas. 
The Flour Fellow is more than just an ergonomical sack that conforms to your body shape. It is made in natural fibers, unlike other sacks that are synthetic and in plastic. I used to have this at home and it was really giving me that
synthetic feeling.
Outer canvas in heavy-duty but soft hemp cloth (machine washable). The inner lining is made out of ecologically produced cotton, and the filling from recycled Styrofoam. You can easily peel the outer liner and wash it in the washing machine at 40° C.

Transparent Hey Chair made by Fabio del Percio

July 5th, 2011 - 
 

The transparent hey chair was made by the designer Fabio del Percio. The 18 kg chair, having  a diameter 1000 cm x H 70 cm, is made using hay and hight quality materials. The pieces of furniture are made using the stuffing technique and the hay is covered in a plastic, strong and transparent PVC foil.
The lower part of the armchair, more precisely the bottom of each piece has small holes that allow the hay to breath. I imagine the smell in a room where you can find these hay armchairs! I was a few days ago in a pet store and I sniffed all the hay I could find in the rabbits area:) Also, in summer, my favourite place to sleep is in the already arranged
haystacks. Coming back to Fabio del Percio and the hay chairs: they are all handmade in Italy and it is adviced to change the hay from inside every 2 years. Instead of the hay you could also stuff newspapers or fabrics. Such an elegant and modern design!
