COUPE Chair by Läufer + Keichel for Offecct (SE)

At first glance COUPE gives the impression of being entirely made of textile. In fact COUPE can be described as a chair that has been dressed up in textile. Läufer + Keichel and Offecct have used a special knitting technique in order to obtain this effect…
‘We wanted to create a chair that gives the impression it is wearing pants,’ says Läufer + Keichel.Julia Läufer and Marcus Keichel founded the design agency Läufer + Keichel, which is based in Berlin. Their work has been characterized by the quest to create everyday objects with a human face, regardless if it is architecture or product design.Läufer + Keichel has been awarded the Good Design Award, the Red Dot Award and the IF Product Design Award, and has participated in a great number of expositions throughout the world.
