Knitting is rarely associated with anything but the most kitsch (or at least outdated) styles of furniture, used almost exclusively to cover pieces rather than hold them together. In this patchwork wooden lounge chair, however, the design strategy is entirely different: shaped wood strips are bound with tightly-wrapped rope material, their very structure dependent upon the fabric that fills the gaps.
The comfort benefits are intuitive and obvious: such a chair as a mixture of rigidity and flexibility from the high back to the bucket seat and sloped horizontal leg rest are. Even the supporting legs and connective frame below are tied rather than glued together.
Along the same lines, Godoylab also manufactures a padded indoor bench that is twined together at careful intervals to give varying degrees of back support within an overall cushioned seating system.
