Design Frédéric Dedelley und Christian Paul Kägi, 2021
In collaboration with Qwstion.
Furniture for sitting, lying or storing things is part of our everyday lives - just as bags are. In an extraordinary collaboration between two Swiss companies, furniture manufacturer Lehni and bag label QWSTION are pursuing a common goal: the production of a circular chair - a piece of furniture that carries people through life. Innovative metal processing meets progressive material development in the textile sector to close the circle and preserve Swiss design for future generations.
Ensō is an armchair for indoors and outdoors, characterised by functionality, timeless design and minimal resource consumption. Aluminium from recycling cycles and regenerative, naturally grown plant fibres form the basis of the frame and seat; all other materials used, such as screws and feet, can also continue to exist in cycles. The armchair is manufactured in the Lehni factory in Dübendorf and the textile seat is also made in Switzerland from Bananatex®, which was developed by QWSTION and is completely biodegradable.
