“Sewing technology is taken to its extreme with a thoroughly researched craftsmanship.” say Färg & Blanche. “We have tried extreme sewing technology the past years,… Now we have gone even further by reducing everything, only a shell of wood with the sewing as pattern generator and a structural element.”

Färg & Blanche’s Wood Tailoring employs a sewing machine to stitch directly onto wood in order to join different parts together and at the same time create patterns which have an aesthetic of their own. Layer upon layer of thick plywood is stitched together to make the Wood Layer Armchair, the resulting sewing presents a topographical map with an organic pattern that resembles the growth of wood.

“Sewing is usually seen as something, which has to do with soft materials. We use our heavy-duty sewing machines to sew in wood. And, yes, it’s a raw poetry that fuses the hand-made with the industrial.”
