Jessy Van Drume is a designer from Belgium who designed the Bind Chair for studio KLAER. Made up of only two materials, a lightweight birch for the frame and thin strips of unblemished pale pink leather that bind the structure together and make the woven seat, its beauty is in the simplicity. The lines, the spaces, the natural colours of the chair and leather are all things that have had me lusting over this chair for days now.
Jessy describes her approach in the design of the chair: "When designing the chair I was searching for a new material context for the use of crafts. Always taking into account a fair, simple construction, materials and a pure formality. This Rattan technique came forward, a simple inexpensive braid technique that has both structural and aesthetic properties. By using this approach, multiple components tied together and leather strings, this technique gets a new context."
