Summary

T-shirt Chair “Rag Edition”, is like a large colorful rag rug, an easy chair made of left over clothes or rags. Every chair has its own unique color and texture combination. The textiles can be individually replaced with worn clothes and textiles from your surroundings, and in that way the T-shirt Chair will evolve and collect history over time – an almost ‘eternal’ piece of furniture… The frame actually has life time warranty used indoors.
In the “Rag Edition” we upholster using left-over fabric pieces from the sofa manufacturing, in a selected ‘all-color’-mix.

Why Green?
  • Socially crafted at YallaTrappan, Rosengård, Malmö.
  • Upholstery with waste furniture fabrics from Bogesunds (or by reusing your own worn clothes or fabrics).
  • Every piece of the upholstery can be removed and washed or changed creating a historical document over time – a ‘slow-blog’ of your life…
  • A birch tree for furniture production planted for every meter bench sold Green Furniture Plantation
