A truly one-off piece, this chair features something old, something new. A modern black leather backrest and seat that carry a distinct ralli pattern are coupled with a pair of reused antique window panels that provide the sides of the chair, and double as armrests. The base is a mild steel plate with hinges, supporting the structure from its center, and allowing the piece its function.
The Product is from the collection of ‘FIVE / PAANCH / KHAMSA’
Ralli is a traditional quilting technique, indigenous throughout Sindh, Pakistan. For thousands of years, this culturally symbolic craft has been passed down generations of women – the details and variations of which are held on to, taught, and nurtured only through memory and word of mouth. Providing color to Pakistan’s rich history of craft, ralli has resurfaced as a source of inspiration.
With ‘5’, the Coalesce team has breathed new life into ralli by capturing the essence of its ‘op art’ allure, and artistically working its geometric patterns into stunning pieces in wood and metal.
In keeping with their signature style of beautifully displaying Pakistan’s native patterns and crafting techniques in sleek, modern forms, Coalesce presents a visual treat in their Ralli-inspired collection, ‘5’.
Squares, triangles, interlocking, openwork, and the unexpected ways in which found objects can be used, all play a part in the quilting of this collection.
The product was designed for Design Days Dubai Exhibition – 2014
