Perm Chair is designed around material aesthetics that can be manipulated through the heating process. Starting from my initial reaction to Twintex® as something that resembled an old grandma's hair, I thought about the use of heat to control and shape forms in different contexts. Process then determined the final form.

First woven on a geometric wooden mold and curled at ambient temperature, Twintex® transforms the typology of an armchair into fluffiness. When heated, the slippery fibers droop due to melted polypropylene. The chair comes out from a machine like loosely curled hair after a perm treatment. Particular attention during the process allows the seat and the back to remain flexible and cushioning, while the fibrous yet hollow structure supports the weight of a human body.
