Whenever we’re flying in a plane above the clouds we daydream about sitting on them. This awesome cloud-shaped chair is called Layers Cloud and it’s made of 545 colorful layers (over 2,700 feet) of Divina fabric by Danish textile company Kvadrat. Created by Dutch designer Richard Hutten, who got his inspiration from the beautiful stratified rock formations in Arizona’s Painted Desert.
The material is 100% wool, but it has a smooth surface similar to felt. Hutten drew the shapes and cut the fabric for the final design with a CNC machine, and then manually assembled the chair using 100 unique colors. He used the fabric as the central focus of the piece, stating “I wanted the design to be about the textile. Rather than using the material as a cover, I created an object with the material.”
Layers Cloud will be on display as part of Kvadrat’s Divina exhibition at the 2014 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
