Chaise Vari by Esrawe
The Chaise Vari, handmade outdoor furniture of metal and PVC cord by Mexico's Esrawe Studio, is a reinterpretation of the work done by itinerant weavers in the streets of Mexico City who create woven pieces for passersby. Other designs by Esrawe include the Block Bookshelves that fit together thanks to slots and the Centipede series of benches that offers movement and grace to users who can choose from concave or convex seating, or even a spot to lie down. The many legs make it look as though the piece is walking, and the undulating shape adds to the sense of fluidity.
