After collaborating for a number of years in the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design, Copenhagen-based designers Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos co-founded Iskos-Berlin in 2010 with the aim of experimenting with new materials and technologies to explore their impact on everyday objects. Their Fiber Chair (2014) has a sculptural shell made of an innovative bio-composite material that contains polypropylene mixed with 25% wood fiber, hence the name. Perfecting the new material took more than two years, but its designers are quite pleased with the result. “We designed this chair with a clear sculptural language that refuses to compromise on comfort,” says Berlin. Standing on solid wood legs, its shell is upholstered in Kvadrat fabric or Silk full-grain, pure-aniline leather that allows for the natural qualities of the hide to remain visible. As with all pure-aniline leathers, Silk will patina and darken over time. The 27"-high arms will fit under most tabletops. Made in Latvia.
