Once the designers start working, the furniture they create and the solutions they find help improve the furniture industry. If the designer is a young student that comes up with amazing designs, the market has good chances to rule out average design. Swedish design student Annika Göransson is one of those designers that creates pieces for the years to come, with a modern touch and amazing shapes. The Mosaiik Lounge Chair, exhibited at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, is a lounge chair with a metal grid serving as support for many colourful foam cubes: 297 to be exact. Resembling corncobs and sunflower buds, the upholstery defines the shape of the lounge chair.
The designer says that: “By pressing the cubes through a wool fabric a smooth surface is created on top while a rough structure forms in the back. By leaving the back uncovered, the user can experience the different structures created by the upholstering technique and also gain an understanding of how the seat is constructed. The simple silhouette of Mosaiik is complemented by a pattern that emphasize the square element of the furniture. The final result is a lounge chair created by a mosaic of soft cubes.”
