Brazilian architect, Paulo Kobylka, designs furniture using brightly painted industrial mesh – and it’s actually comfortable!
March 15th, 2017
Designed by Brazilian architect Paulo Kobylka, The PK6 and PK7 chair and sofa are made from industrial metal screens. “The design intention transforms industrial profiles and a wired mesh, usually applied as supporting elements, into protagonists on the main stage,” says Kobylka.
Kobylka’s PK1 and PK2 sofas similarly questioned the appeal of industrial materials, by featuring long cantilevered cushions designed to resemble large slabs of concrete.
Each piece is handmade, with every trim, weld and fold manually created by a team of artisans. The braided pattern of the mesh has been created using an industrial loom. Foam cushions help alleviate the hardness of the material, with soft tubes also placed over the armrests. Hardcore comfort.
