The New York-based, multidisciplinary artist Ana Kraš has created Ofset Chair for Knit!. Ofset Chair sees six quadrilateral planes upholstered in an assortment of Kvadrat Febrik knitted textiles: Uniform Melange, Gentle 2, Mosaic and Sprinkles. Together, they form a design that plays with the typology of waiting room chairs – all overlapping facets and strict right angles. Textures and colours are contrasted with each other to achieve a complementary, harmonious effect. Rather than showing off Ofset Chair’s upholstery in a traditional way, Kraš has covered all the seams and stitchings with frames.
