Adventures in Extreme Sewing

PRESENTED ON OCT 28, 2015

"When we told [our production methods] to some producers, they didn't believe us. This is the sewing machine we bought ourselves to figure out how to do it."

家具デザイン、工業デザイン、アートなど、多岐にわたるクリエイティブフィールドにおいて実験的なアプローチで次々と作品を発表し、世界中のデザイン関係者から注目されているスウェーデンのデザインスタジオFÄRG & BLANCHE。メンバーのFredrik Färgさんが、近作のユニークな縫製家具が生まれた背景を明らかにされています!彼らの制作プロセスは必見です!
