Peter Traag’s Sponge Chair

Growing up, a baseball glove chair was the ultimate dream. In retrospect, the desire for a comfortable brown leather arm chair would have been more appropriate, and simply a little more refined. Peter Traag’s Sponge Chair (designed in 2004) does an odd job of combining the two feelings – refinement and exuberance. His work drapes an over-sized upholstery over a polyurethane foam injection, creating folds that are influenced by a sea sponge. In the brown leather above this works a charm. With the silver model after the jump, the jury is still out. You can get both versions of the Sponge chair from MOSS.
