Crown Armchair — Silas Wool, Eggshell

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

The Crown Armchair is cleverly constructed, with a playful element to it. It’s backrests are perched on the armrests, seemingly unsupported but in fact relying on a strong, concealed steel joint.

Crown’s distinct design gives it open transparent surfaces, and creates new expressions depending on its placement in the room. This comfortable chair suits just as well around the desk or conference table, as the dining table.

The exceptional volume and softness of Silas is the result of an extraordinarily complex finishing process. The original velvet structure of the textile is subjected to six days where the hair is repeatedly unraveled and beaten to make it swell and resume its shape. The whole procedure can also leads to variations in pile height. Finally it has a steam treatment which makes the surface extremely soft and voluminous as well to the richness and depth of colour.
