Chair Wear is a great project by design studio Bernotat & Co that was shown during Milan Design Week at Ventura Lambrate. Why buy a new chair when you can dress up the one you have? As the designers explain: “Chair Wear started as a mildly ironical joke, and ended up in a very inspiring new way of looking at furniture upholstery, of seeing it as a separate item, leading to new constructions, productions techniques and materials. With a real collection as a result.” The textiles were made in with the help of the Audax Textile Museum in Tilburg, which will feature in the next issue of COVER.
The International Contemporary Furniture Fair will be held in Manhattan later this month. Here, COVER outlines what visitors can expect.
