A work of art that recreates the inner workings of the human body in an intricate 3D knit textile.
Amsterdam-based Dutch artist and designer Nynke Tynagel creates multi-disciplinary work that explores iconographic imagery, including elements of pop culture along with heraldic, dark, cartoonish and satirical concepts. She has co-founded the renowned design firm Studio Job, but after more than 20 years of working in the practice, she left to pursue an independent path as an autonomous artist. Nynke Tynagel has collaborated with a wide range of brands to produce cutting-edge work. Her designs have been exhibited at MoMA, Museum Voorlinden, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, to name a few. For the Anatomic lounge chair created for Dutch design-art label inCC, the designer collaborated with textile brand ByBorre. Highly ornamental, the deck chair also doubles as a wall tapestry. The design depicts the internal workings of the human body in a highly detailed, 3D-knit pattern.
Drawing inspiration from her parents’ background in textile design, Nynke Tynage also referenced board games in the distinctive design. Textile pioneers ByBorre translated her elaborate, multi-layered vector work into an intricate and innovative 3D knit that boasts a tactile surface. The recycled fabric wraps over an oak frame, providing a comfortable seating solution that doubles as a work of art. The user can hang the deck chair on a wall as a decorative accent with the included wall mount. Additionally, the Anatomic lounge chair suits both indoor and outdoor areas. The first product in the inCC collection, the handmade chair is available in a limited-edition of only 600 pieces, at a price of around $800 with European shipping included. inCC also offers international shipping for this one of a kind lounge chair.
