"What the water gave me"

Last winter was exceptionally wet in UK, news were full of images of landscapes after flooding, reminding us once again of our fragility against the nature. This made me want to create an object that would humbly present how we somehow always find the strenght to continue and look into the future, no matter from how poor conditions we start rebuilding our lives. Rather than optimism it is about our incredible will to live and survive. I ended up designed this chair with as simple elements and techniques as possible. Knotted seat looks fragile, but is surprisingly strong and comfortable.
