Big Rush

During her research on the interaction between an object’s structure and its skin, Hanna Maring came across the traditional technique of rush weaving, whereby a single cord is wrapped around a frame to create a seating surface. In various models she explored the full possibilities of this technique using three-dimensional frames. As the cord is wound round and round, new shapes appear. The construction of the frame directly influences the pattern and defines the final shape of the chair. ‘Big Rush’ demonstrates the beauty of intertwining two elements to create something new.
