I know I was onto something with holes and upholstery! Here is something different from fabric but still incorporates holes. Tejo Remy & René Veenhuizen have made inflated looking chairs by pouring concrete into an expandable rubber mold.
I love the forms, they are such my style. Though I would have made the three legged chair with four legs. Also anyone interested in hearing Tejo Remy speak at Pratt at the end of April, please contact me at IDSAPratt@gmail.com
