Our peculiar object of the week is the 'Kokon Chair' created by Dutch designer Jurgen Bey, who wrapped existing chairs with tight, elastic synthetic fiber resulting in a highly imaginative hybrid. Futuristic nostalgics? Sure. The conceptually interesting thing here, is that instead of using raw material, existing products are recycled as a design material for a new product. Furthermore Kokon furniture subverts the idea of an ideal form by suggesting infinite variations of the archetype; Form follows Form.
