“Our aim was to create dense braiding that would still let the air through, reminiscent of the braiding of the ropes used to moor boats , (kingston rope chair)which makes the pieces look lightweight but, at the same time, they look just like cosy nests in natural colours to sit back and relax in.”

And the rope chair, the chair with its classic braiding and baskets, it’s captivating.
