Poetry and textile characterize Läufer + Keichel 's news for OffecctOffecct initiates collaboration with Berlin based design agency Läufer + Keichel and presents two new products; the chair COUPE and the easy chair LAYER.
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. In the process to obtain this we are happy for the knowledge and support Offecct provided us during the development process, says Läufer + Keichel.
The easy chair LAYER is characterized by three layers, which can be varied in terms of textile and color in order to create a unique design. The first layer can be compared to a stool, the second layer to a chair and the third layer creates the final form; an easy chair.
- There is a strong poetic aspect to LAYER: the layers can be seen as flower petals, or as the different blue layers that emerge when one looks at mountains in the horizon, says Läufer + Keichel.
