- a stool family -
Fransson is a family of stools. Every family bring forth numerous different characters.
Our ambition in this project was to create a stackable stool, which can convince in various different scenarios because of its simplicity. By combining several different types of wood and textiles we archived the diversity of our family members within our stools.
Collaboration with Lisa Reiser and the Swedish furniture manufacturer Gärsnäs.

Approximately 60 tights were woven into the new textile which only reveals its origins on closer examination. The techniques of a traditional weaving loom were used to guarantee the solidity of the fabric. The seat is directly woven into the chair frame and benefits from the textile´s elasticity, enabling the seating to adapt to every user. The frame consists of 12 mm and 6 mm steel bars, ensuring the required stability.
And that is how a worn-out piece of clothing with presumably rather low material worth and even lower sentimental value turns into a long-lasting product that enables a durable relationship between itself and its user.
