Industrial Wool Felt Floor Perch

The Floor Perch remasters the art of sculpting, using digital fabrication and solid, renewable materials. Materials commonly associated with seating – upholstery, foam products and toxic finishes – are all supplanted with thick sheets of natural wool felt, adhered with non-toxic, water-based adhesives. The precision-cut contours of each piece of felt are aggregated into sinuous yet comfortable forms. The cascading edges create an integral pattern with both a visual and tactile effect.

The Floor Perch is a pouf, a coffee table, and a storage device combined in one. The soft and solid stack of high-density felt sheets catches the eye and comforts the bottom of the feet. The subtly torqued volume is intersected by angular aluminum inserts, creating voids for storage within and a hard surface on top to keep your beverage close by.

The Floor Perch is designed as a stand-alone piece for the compact home or as a grouped system for lobby and lounge environments.
