Project name: Blush Chair
Designer: Sofie Brünner
Blush is a unique lounge chair that aims at stimulating the senses.
Working from the concept of haptic design (design that stimulate the sense of touch), Blush has a contrasting and playful appearance that invites the user to explore the materials, construction and comfortability. The chair consists of a faceted hard aluminium shell in which a perforated pattern has been laser-cut. Using a brush binding technique, the holes are upholstered with strips of hand printed felt. This results in a soft and tactile front upholstery and a pixel-like upholstered back.
Overall Blush has a surprisingly austere expression that is softened by the blushing felt loops that flourish across the chair.
