Jonathan Olivares' Square Chair, from Moroso and slated for display at the Kvadrat showroom, offers an irresistible form based on a unique conceit.
Inspired by his collaboration with the Danish textile manufacturer, Olivares modeled Square on the base unit of fabric: "it derives its formal language from the basic square that makes up the warp and weft of a woven textile."
The designer goes on to say that Square chair is essentially a portion of textile under the microscope, as it were—enlarged, abstracted, and amply cushioned.
Square's construction is similarly basic. Made of tubular steel with a wood frame and polyester fiberfill, Square embraces the simplicity of its geometry. It's a flexible, lightweight work chair that's funky and fun.
