Inspired by the ubiquitous camping gear but featuring a stylish, modern aesthetic, the Tent Chair brings a breath of fresh air into the world of modern furniture design. The innovative product was created by London-based industrial design agency Layer Design for Italian furniture brand Moroso and made its debut at the 2017 Salone del Mobile in Milan. As the world’s first 3D-knitted seating, the chair provides a glimpse into how the latest technologies can influence and enhance traditional processes. “Tent Chair is part of our ongoing research into the future of smart textile construction, and explores new digital knitting technologies to improve the furniture manufacturing process,” explains Benjamin Hubert, founder of the design studio.

Made from one piece of 3D-knitted nylon, the chair combines a minimalist appearance with plenty of convenience. The cover features cushions and sleeves integrated in the nylon cover, which makes the seating suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The padding allows water to simply flow through, which means that the seating will handle all weather conditions. 2 million knots and 50,000 meters of yarn make up every seamless cover, with sailing rope used not only for superior performance but also for more durability.

Held by guide ropes tensioned on a steel frame, Tent Chair provides a high level of comfort and support, while also conforming to the shape of the user thanks to the stretchy fabric. As ingenious as it is eco-friendly and versatile, the chair comes with a 100% recyclable yarn cover and a knock-down construction to allow for easy flat-packing. A perfect blend state-of-the-art technology, sustainability and good design. Images courtesy of Layer Design.
