Design duo Färg & Blanche created this furniture collection by sewing pieces of plywood together.
Färg & Blanche used a heavy-duty sewing machine more commonly used for making car seats to stitch together sections of plywood. After discovering that it was possible to sew the wood together, the pair experimented with different thicknesses and densities to push the limits of the machine.
“It was really exciting to find that this actually worked,” said Blanche. “We went thicker and thicker with the wood, so the ideas kept coming and developing.”
The first item they created in the Wood Tailoring range was the Pocket Cupboard, a modular storage system with leather pockets attached onto the front of the doors.
Wood contours that get darker as they become smaller form the back of the Wood Layer Armchair, which arcs around a leather seat. The pieces of the smaller Bespoke Chair are steamed to bend them before stitching, while the armchair is sewn flat and then glued into its curved shape.
Färg & Blanche are a Swedish and French duo who worked independently before combining their efforts and setting up their own studio in Stockholm four years ago.
