With the 'Layer Ottoman' Morphosis Design Studio created and designed something unique but with a throw-back to the old 'Riempie' chairs. Creating/Designing a piece of furniture that explores innovative design ideas and the symbiotic relationship between different materials, combining them to create a design that is unique, robust and timeless. The Iroko/Nigerian Teak used is tough, dense and very durable. It is one of the most naturally durable timbers because it contains natural oil and therefore needs no preservatives - oiling or varnishing. The texture of the Iroko in combination with the Polyester weave creates a piece of furniture that looks solid but is still modern. The polyester weave highlights certain parts of the design and is shown off against the light Iroko timber.
