The Nanook collection is composed of a chair, an armchair and a low table. It is a study of the transition from two to three dimensions based on observing the tanning process of a quadruped's hide. Its basic shape is a hexagonal arrangement inspired by molecular geometry or a snowflake. The chair’s upholstery is a natural skin. Nature’s rigorous geometry inspires its shape.
Like the animal skins Inuit peoples wear for protection, Nanook's technical-fabric upholstery has tribal echoes. The pleated, three-dimensional skin is transformed into a contemporary object through the use of digital printing for the upholstery, and moulded synthetic material for the frame. Its name derives from the protagonist of the first nature documentary in film history – preserves tribal memories while looking to the future and to technology with the same optimism with which Nanook observed his icy environment.
