On the border of functionality and autonomous work in my master's thesis project I preserved the octagonal structure that is commonly used on Thonet chairs. This structure becomes part of the framework, pulling the texture out of its mere two-dimensional surface-filling existence. My masters thesis also provides a solution on how to combine functionally soft and hard materials, in this case textile and wood, where textile is used as a connecting system. With improvements in the octagonal woven structure, I also explored further possibilities within the structure itself. The developed woven pattern collection consist of eight different structures and their color variations. Above you can see two types which were used on the final objects.
