Crochet Chair by Marcel Wanders

The crochet chair consists only of hand sewn cotton and epoxy resin. The structure is completely hollow and relies on the strength of the resin to hold the shape and also the weight of a person. This style offers new applications for traditional crochet, enlarging the decorative possibilities of this particular art. Even Jay-Z and Beyonce bought one of these chairs – the Crochet Chair by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, sold for $40,000. The interesting piece of furniture was bought by the famous couple during a private tour of a design exhibition in Miami.
