The Nanook collection is composed of a chair, an armchair and a low table. It is a study of the transition from two to three dimensions based on observing the tanning process of a quadruped's hide. The chair's upholstery should be seen as a sign, a trace, a memory of the animal, the transfiguration of its skin. This taut skin evokes memories of the animal it once was. The same skin, pleated, gives us the three-dimensionality of a chair or armchair. Its basic shape is a hexagonal arrangement inspired by molecular geometry or a snowflake. The chair's upholstery is a natural skin. Nature's rigorous geometry inspires its shape.
Like the animal skins Inuit peoples wear for protection, Nanook's technical-fabric upholstery has tribal echoes. The pleated, three-dimensional skin is transformed into a contemporary object through the use of digital printing for the upholstery, and moulded synthetic material for the frame. Nanook seating - whose name derives from the protagonist of the first nature documentary in film history - preserves tribal memories while looking to the future and to technology with the same optimism with which Nanook observed his icy environment.
