C2S armchair

C2S is an armchair comprising three handmade wool felts swirled around an industrial-steel frame. The textile is made from natural pigmented wool from the Norwegian Spælsau sheep (aka Old Norwegian Short Tail Landrace). Often coarse and dirty, the wool has a relatively low commercial value, and is classified at the lowest grade – C2S, which gives the chair its name. In a modern take on tradition, the armchair uses honest materials and construction methods to highlight the unique character of an often-overlooked natural resource. The wool is processed by Norilia and needle-felted at Sjølingstad Uldvarefabrik – a factory protected by the Norwegian Directorate of Cultural Heritage.
