Materials — Recycled PET felt
Dimensions — 16.5" W × 18" H × 15 3/4" D
Stackable up to 4 chairs.
Kid-friendly's a nice concept but here's the real thing. HAY's Little Nobody Chair is made entirely from pliant heat-formed felt. No hard surfaces or rough edges here. From the Danish design duo Komplot—aka Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen—the Little Nobody is easy to pick up and move around and can be pulled across the floor without scratching.
The stackable chair is molded in 1 piece and in a single process during manufacturing, completely fabricated in PET felt (made from recycled plastic bottles) that is thermo-pressed into shape. Ingeniously, the result is seating without any internal framework, screws, plastic, glue or other means of reinforcement. The innovative construction is also a mind-bender in its medium-is-the-message: the ostensible covering is the chair itself. Hence the naming pun that references the lack of inner structure: No body.
