LOOM BY PTOLEMY MANN | Chair
The Loom Collection has a very specific inspiration, a manual belt-making loom typical from the city of Oaxaca, Mexico. This seating range reinterprets the logic of the simple loom beams and the vertical journey of each thread, playing with the idea of independent threads coming together to create a woven surface. The strong elastic polyester woven cord offers infinite possibilities, as each thread can be specified in a different colour. Available in a selection of solid wood and eight different colours of woven cords.
British artist and textiles designer Ptolemy Mann provides a new take on H Furniture´s Loom chair.
The Loom chair has a very specific inspiration — a small manual belt-making loom discovered in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico. Threads of elastic polyester woven cord are stretched to create the seating area and back rest, providing a very comfortable seating experience.
Mann’s input takes the texture of the threaded cords to another dimension, introducing intriguing pattern and colour combinations to the mix. Her woven compositions are available in creatively combined shades of green, deep blue and yellow.
The chair frame has been carved by a computer-controlled CNC machine, for a superaccurate finish. The chairs are sanded and finished by hand. The chair is available in a choice of solid oak or American walnut.
