Woven chairs, fabrics and bags are trendy once again. Thonet is back.

Exotic and retro woven ideas from Maison & Objet 2017

Already back in 2015, we witnessed an increase in woven chairs in rattan, wicker and midollino but it’s interesting to see how this year at Maison & Objet there was an even greater revival of woven furniture and accessories. This time, motifs were even more classical, such as those by the iconic Thonet and its exciting new partnerships.

Here we are at the third episode about the new design trends that emerged during M&O 2017. After volumes and transparencies, Paris talks about woven furniture.

Going on with the game from the last chapters, what do binds tell about us? Are they the plots of our favourite TV series? Are they the outline of news on TV? Or are they the nets of the web? We are surrounded by mess, maybe woven furniture and accessories tell about our need to get away from it all. They evoke the charm of a refined and exotic courtyard far away from everything, besides reminding us of the slow wooden craftsmanship.

There’s a feeling of “relaxed elegance” in Sagan Vienna’s mission. The name of the Middle European luxury brand of leather bags and accessories changed with the Japanese expression referred to those who “live on the left riverbank” (nonconformists). In partnership with Thonet GmbH (Thonet immediately implies design), Sagan designed a reinterpretation of the S32 tubular steel chair by Marcel Breuer, together with bags (photo above). Instead of the usual Indian caning from 1929, here the sitting and the backrest are made of leather, still maintaining the Viennese patter, blending the Far East with Middle Europe.

This collection of furniture and chairs in ash and rattan comes from Thailand. Warm and timeless, these pieces are a contemporary reinterpretation of colonial aesthetics. Cane Collection retro approach (by Thai Atelier 2+ and PODIUM) recalls Thonet style but is inspired by a more distant past.

It’s the 17th century, the era of trades between Europe and Asia and when rattan, a resistant yet flexible material coming from an eastern palm, was popular in the west. From the ‘cane’ comes the ‘caning’ technique (working the skin of the cane stems).

Awarded among the “Rising Asian Talents” of M&O 2017, the brand Kamaro’an took inspiration from Taiwanese indigenous culture. It created a collection of lamps and accessories made of natural materials to give a new life to traditional craftsmanship and to combine it with contemporary design. It has pacific, adaptable and modern aesthetics, as you can see from the Kamaro’an bags line, simple, refined and traditionally woven. As part of this Woven Series there is the Triangle Bag (picture below and the beginning), ideal for everyday needs. A Woven Card Case, Pen Case and Woven briefcase are also part of the collection.

In Pangcah, Kamaro’an means “place to live”. Woven design pieces seen at M&O tell us about Japan, Thailand, Taiwan…but what is your ideal ‘place to live’?
