Squishy chair from Annie Evelyn

best-of-new-york-design-week-2013-by-yatzer-1020Graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, Annie Evelyn is a furniture designer who has been developing her unusual furniture upholstery techniques since she was a student.

This collection of chairs, named “Squishy”, has been designed for Brooklyn-based company New Colony Furniture.

Evelyn reclaims wooden chair frames, lines the seats and backs with foam, and painstakingly covers these surfaces with small pieces of hard materials that give way when pressure is applied. With this technique, she’s able to make cracked cement, tiles and faceted pieces of wood into exceptionally comfortable seating surfaces. Instead of poking you, those sticks will cradle the curves of your body.
