FELT was working closely together with Wefapress for over a year, investigating the possibilities of their unique PE-plastics in interior design, when the company got hit by a devastating fire ruining their entire production facilities in Vreden. Inspired by their resilience as a company and impelled by their determination to move forward, we helped them to ‘pick up the pieces’. We looked into the scares leftover material and used it to design two unique pieces of furniture, both at show on PHAS. The Piano stool is aimfully designed as a cheerful object. Referring both to the mid-century optimism associated with plastic design, as much as representing the perpetual good spirit of the Wefa family while going through these challenging times. The After-eight is a concept that investigates the application of scent in furniture design. A unique leftover research sample sheet of mint infused PE was used to clad the inside of a circular lounge chair, perfect for rocking yourself asleep after a heavy meal. A chair as an after dinner mint?
