Designer Asa Karner of Alvi Design recently showcased her Silk Chair at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. The environmental friendly chair is built from FSC-certified oak with a back and seat created with eco-friendly silk thread strung through the frame.
“My ambition is to design furniture and products, using environmentally friendly materials with long durability, a focus on sustainable production methods and humane working conditions. These are the criteria I use as a platform for my design and production.” explains Asa Karner. She adds, “In my design my aim is to in a playful way combine and push the limits between modern, functional design, art and handicraft from different cultures.”
The transparent expression is in focus, which creates new forms and brings forth a perception of weightlessness, while the light produces an interesting play of shadow through the thread work.
