Detroit-based designer Evan Fay of design studio Aratani Fay is best known for experimenting with expressive and irregular forms. On Salone Satellite, a subsidiary event of Milan Design Week, Evan exhibited his unique Lawless chair as a different kind of furniture with an innovative artful form.
Made of deep blue foam ribbons that are interwoven with round black metal frame in different angles, this cleverly crafted furniture piece appears elegant and luxurious. The square foam strips are covered in Neoprene, also known as scuba fabric to keep things comfortable. Lawless Chair is a celebration of irregularity within a system, pursuing a more artful form that responds to the chaotic landscape within our structured society. This sculptural chair adds a touch of charm to a space with irresistibly attractive design. The punk aesthetic construction of metal pieces with foam ribbons evoke a different kind of aesthetic that makes it perfect for modern apartments, offering a cushioned feel of a quilted hammock.
