“Stool 2”
by designer Doug Johnston is described this way on Matter’s website: These stools utilize an old crafting technique in which rope or cord is coiled and stitched to forms bowls and baskets. The technique is itself based on the ancient method of making ceramic coiled pots as well as coiled basketry. Using raw 100% cotton braided cord, often called sash cord, and colored sewing thread, they are individually sewn on an industrial zig-zag sewing machine without the use of forms or molds. Pretty cool.
