Soft landscapes

One of the first people to work with felt was Paola Lenti. About ten years ago there was a great rush in the interior design industry to find Non-woven materials.
Lenti developed a vocabulary of felt furniture that was essentially a landscape of low to the ground chaises and poufs. At the time a striking comment of materiality and a striking comment on furniture use and room making.
