mixed fibers & steel
the tapa daybed is a steel bench covered with a double-side thick felt fabric, made out of waste fibres from a local weaving mill. the artisanal felting process mixes the different fibers layers and results in a deep and vibrant coloured texture. the uniqueness of each piece produced increases the pictural character of the surface.
the clear line of the plain steel structure designed by erwin de muer, emphazises the density of the textile and brings a strong stability to the «flying carpet».
