Knot

Check out this cool chair I found! Designer Rik Velden took a trip to the Harbour Museum in Rotterdam, which led to the inspiration for this hand knotted chair. Taking interest in all the ways they used knotting techniques that are used on ships, Veldon got two of the museum’s employees who specialized in these methods to teach him their skills. After three months of honing his new-found skills, he finally perfected the technique. I thought this was a really cool inspirational design story to tell. Velden had a great design idea and made it a reality with this cool chair.
