POLI is an innovative lounge chair, born from the collaboration between textile designer Mika Barr and industrial designer Gil Sheffi. It reflects the designers' common perception that integration between textile and industrial design can create exiting new meeting points. The material was at the base of Poli's creation process. It is made from a fabric, especially developed for the project ,in which a printed pattern determines the textile's dropping, folding and movement, enabling it to turn into a 3d form creating a unique and refreshing aesthetics. Poli uses one spread of fabric for the seat, back-rest and arm-rest, exploiting the fabric extras for folding. In this process the fabric has an active part in the creation of the final form, making it both planned and natural. Poli geometric visual appearance transforms into a comfortable, welcoming feeling once seated upon.
