When I was young, I would play a game called cat’s cradle whereby two people would make patterns with a single loop of string and pass them to each other. What proved interesting during the development of the Sandur range was the ability of the weave to follow a different profile than might be expected from the frame itself and to create an independent 3-dimensional shape within the skeletal steel structure. This gave us more freedom to allow the frame to express itself and take on a character of its own, while at the same time providing the support in key areas for the weave to perform the essential ergonomic functions. It is the nature and degree of the interdependence between frame and weave that fascinated and inspired us in this project.
