Name: Loom Chair

Designer: Laura Carwardine

Location: Toronto, Ontario

Looms are traditionally used to weave cloth with their basic purpose, to hold threads under tension to facilitate the interweaving of the weft. The precise shape of the loom and its mechanics may vary, but the basic function is the same. The word “loom” comes for the Old English “geloma” meaning utensil or tool. In greek mythology, the loom was the symbol of Athena.

Using rope to incorporate textile techniques at a magnified scale, the Loom Chair, created by Laura Carwardine, combines the use of soft and hard materials frequently used in factory production. The seat and back support for this lounge chair are created from one continuous piece of orange rope, wrapped over a wooden dowel rod structure, as you would see in a traditional cloth loom.
