Product description Specification

Fredrik Farg and Emma Marga Blanche are a young couple of designers (with Swedish and French origins respectively) who add personality, technique and innovation. They have been developing a technique over the years at their studio in Stockholm, being bapitised and registered as Wood TailoringTM, which includes the use of sewing machines directly over hard materials like wood, to unify different parts. With it, the patterns created have an aesthetic value within themselves and offer amazing results. The first pieces made using this technique, which require an abundance of artisanal ability, were presented by Farg & Blanche at the Stockholm Fair in 2014 as a conceptual project. BD has taken up the challenge and has adapted to the prototypes and serial production, materialising the now new presented chair, re-baptised with the name Couture. An evolution to its form has taken place to make it more comfortable with additional armrests and a swivel base, so that this piece be much more functional and not just beautiful.

“We have been experimenting with extreme sewing technology for our very different projects and experiments since we opened our design studio, so we had the desire to go even further and try in a harder material. Our drive is to find new production methods and ways of using a material. We have a big workshop in our atelier, with a wood machine and sewing machine where we can experiment directly on a full scale. Sewing is usually concerning only soft materials, but we use a heavy-duty sewing machine to sew wood. It’s a raw poetry that fuses the hand-made with the industrial. Layers of thick plywood are stitched together to make the Couture Armchair, where the sewing represents a topographical map with an organic pattern that resembles the growth of wood (the same pattern reappears on the front part with its upholstery). We wanted to create an armchair with a strong focus on the pattern created by the seams and where the craft is really visible. The use of a gradient amplifies the effect of the layers and the feeling of attaching two hard materials together.”

Armchair: 70 x 73 x h101 cm
Structure finishing: Solid wood (grey or natural). Backrest consists of birch plywood pieces sewn together with polyamide thread.
Upholstery: Black leather.

BD Barcelona Design

Since its origins in the 1970s, BD has always been an atypical company. Its founders and owners, who come from an architectural background rather than business, have oriented BD’s production from the very start by cultivating beauty, in some cases above function. Using artisanal processes instead of mass production, the products always have more proximity to art than industrial design, characterized by superior quality, short-series productions (and on occasion limited editions), and unique pieces due to crafted manufacturing.
