The brilliantly simple ff1 indoor lounge chair is the first piece from young Belgian designers James van Vossel and Tom de Frieze, who started their design company Fox and Freeze in October 2009.
Starting from a single square sheet of synthetic felt, the material is twisted and twisted again, just like a scarf, ending in a symmetric and but also an asymmetric object. There’s no loss of material (except from the drilled holes), and the structure is self-supporting.
