 DESIGN_No support with wood, no metal, no other structure: only 1 square sheet of synthetic felt twisted. This is the artfully idea of FF1, the indoor lounge chair made by Fox & Freeze.

James Van Vossel and Tom De Vrieze are two Belgian designers in a creative cooperation for Fox&Freeze. As you can read carefully, the english ‘Fox’ stands for ‘Vos’ in Dutch and 'Freeze' stands clearly for ‘Vrieze’. 








 FF1, or Fox&Freeze1, has no loss of material except from the drilled holes. It is totally self-supporting, the flax rope contracts the chair and finishes the chair aesthetically.

 The shell and base are not separated from the sheet but remain connected. Starting from a square surface,

the felt sheet is twisted and twisted again, just like a scarf, ending in a symmetric and but also an asymmetric object, this is literally forms follows function.
