YARN armchair
Design: Mia Cullin

Yarn is a unique and environmentally friendly armchair developed in the experimental collaborative project called “The Kinship Method”. The armchair with its few components, has a light weight and an almost floating look. Sustainability and the environmental impact have been central to the design and choice of materials. In Materia’s production, the backrest´s beautiful pattern is braided by hand using hemp strings. The seat and back cushions are padded with hairlok, which is a mixture of horsehair and natural latex, as well as needle felt. To provide extra comfort, wool is also included as part of the back cushion. The wood is FSC®-labelled, and the frame with recycled steel is available in all Colours by Materia colours. Yarn is suitable for many different spaces, such as hotels, restaurants, and in offices. The armchair is also an excellent choice when environmentally friendly furniture is a requirement.
