From 5 yards of striped upholstery fabric I created 125 yards (375 feet) of handmade webbing which I wove onto the iconic Marcel Breuer "Wassily" Chair frame.
is my first weaving project and it proved more challenging than I
thought. The armature created both opportunities and constraints that
lead to hours upon hours of trial and error. It was arduous both mentally and physically and infinitely, infinitley rewarding.
A friend jokingly called this project blasphemous. Perhaps in some ways it is, but now the chair is more comfortable than the original and far more tactile. It has inspired new ideas for original armatures with alternate weaving strategies.
