JIB

For the Milan Salone 2104 I was invited by the Danish fabric manufacturer Kvadrat to develop some furniture using their Divina woven and felted wool range. The Jib stools are made in individually upholstered parts that can be brought together in different combinations, almost like choosing and comparing sample swatches.

The geometry of the parts is slightly asymmetrical skewing the assembly. The units can also incorporate longer parts to form, for example, a bench with the same language.

A ‘Jib’ is one of the main sails on a boat.
