Couture is an armchair designed by Färg & Blanche for Barcelona Design. Seat structure in solid wood and upholstered. Backrest consists of birch plywood pieces sewn together with polyamide thread. Upholstered in BD’s leathers.
"Sewing is usually concerning only soft materials, but we use a heavy-duty sewing machine to sew wood. It’s a raw poetry that fuses the hand-made with the industrial. Layers of thick plywood are stitched together to make the Couture Armchair, where the sewing represents a topographical map with an organic pattern that resembles the growth of wood (the same pattern reappears on the front part with its upholstery). We wanted to create an armchair with a strong focus on the pattern created by the seams and where the craft is really visible. The use of a gradient amplifies the effect of the layers and the feeling of attaching two hard materials together.”
