Chairs and Cushions in the Shape of Sailor’s Knots

by interior designer

in General

If you like to sit down and unknot a problem, then this seat might be what you’re looking for. Each of these contemporary knot seats are made from a combination of foam and wool. Not surprisingly, the inspiration behind these unique designs comes from the form of a traditional sailor’s knot.

Some of the knots are full sized seats, the others are smaller cushions which can also be used with other items of seating furniture. The designers of these inspiring pieces are Belgium duo Emilie Lecouturier and CĂ©line Poncelet. In 2006, the product and interior designers created their own company called Atelier BLINK. Their basic ethos is to create the unexpected in what we usually consider to be familiar objects.
