embroidery lounge chair

Design Johan Lindstén, 2016
Solid ash, plywood, cross-stitched embroidered fabric
Made in Italy by Cappellini

A year-long story that spans a lifetime. Johan Lindstén captures the beauty of the seasons in autumn, winter, spring, and summer sceneries depicted across the backrest of the poetic Embroidery Chair. Cross-stitched, the sublime synthesis between traditional embroidery techniques that have been passed down for generations and state-of-the-art industrial technology. The quiet attentiveness of deer in the wild, the playfulness of polar bears, the ephemeral flight of butterflies, the elegant grace of flamingos: stitched with electronic machinery that effectively reproduces the manual cross-stitching technique using wool thread. The structure of the Embroidery Chair is made of ash wood stained in hues that set off the scene; a walnut finish for autumn, bleached wood for spring, black for winter and red for summer.

Immediately after completing his studies, Johan Lindstén founded his own design studio in Stockholm, in 2008. The broad array of Lindstén's creations ranges from the design of limited edition products (often sold to museums) and high-tech accessories for everyday use such as his sound-absorbing products for Apple, or designer furniture and furnishing elements. Johan Lindstén interprets design as an opportunity to express emotions and thoughts, which he transfers into physical objects that can improve a person's state of mind and better the quality of life, with elements that are visually pleasing, playful and surprising. Unexpected eye-catching details are one of his recurring themes: his products are characterized by simplicity and emotional nuances, giving life to forms that are not just pleasing to the eye, but above all, the expression of sentiment.

"Scandinavian personality, Italian quality": these are the words of designer Johan Lindstén to explain the secret behind the success of the Embroidery Chair, a comfortable ergonomic seat that is an enchanting accent to enliven a room. The Embroidery Chair is produced in a numbered, but not limited, series.
