ValenOK Armchair by Elena Zaznobina

Home > Winners > #133092


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
ValenOK

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Armchair

INSPIRATION:
In Siberia, in cold seasons, they traditionally used felted wool shoes - felt boots. They served as the prototype for this chair. Like felt boots, the upper layer of the chair is covered with a soft woolen fabric containing mohair. Childhood recollection - they sewed mittens to the kids on an elastic band and passed them through the sleeves so that they would not get lost. Small pockets on the armrests are mittens for your hands.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The streamlined chair is made using a light polymer frame, furniture fillers and natural woolen fabric. Like the prototype, felt boot, the chair is conceived as a light, durable, comfortable and warming piece of furniture. The frame made of lightweight polymer allows to reduce weight and ensure ergonomics during operation, while the natural woolen coating maintains a comfortable temperature. There are mitten pockets on the armrests of the chair, in which you can comfortably warm your hands.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This lightweight chair can be moved around the room with one hand. On cooler days, it will keep you warm thanks to its hugging shape and natural fluffy wool upholstery. Your hands will not freeze, they will be warm in the pockets-mittens on the armrests, even during a long time watching your favorite movie.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The development of the chair began in September and continued until the end of November 2021 in Moscow, Russia.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Saving energy resources today, many people are more responsible for heating their homes and lower the temperature in the room. Referring to the living conditions of previous generations, wanted to use traditional technologies of felting wool in pieces of furniture. Wool is environmentally friendly and helps to keep warm as much as possible. Having tried several methods of felting wool for the production of furniture elements, a compromise option was born using upholstery fabrics made of wool and mohair.

CHALLENGE:
The main goal of the projects was the idea to embody traditional material, warm emotional component and modern piece of furniture.
