The iconic Knotted Chair is a brilliant adult interpretation of the tiny chairs used to decorate a doll’s house, a visionary creation by designer Marcel Wanders. This project has been officially consecrated by earning a place in the permanent collections of the MoMA in New York, the V&A Museum in London and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
By eliminating the distinction between artisanship and industrial production, Wanders has turned this chair into work of art to be cherished in the home and integrated into our daily lives.
The macramé technique that inspired the design of the Knotted Chair has been revisited in a surprising structure made of carbon covered with aramide fibre cord and then coated with epoxy resin. Thus, an innovative object was born, with an intrinsically romantic allure: a collector’s piece, utterly unique in the history of international design.

Cappellini was founded in 1946 by Enrico Cappellini in the Italian Brianza region, north of Milan. Cappellini began as a furniture maker specializing in wooden furniture and case goods. After Enrico’s son Giulio joined the company, bringing a passion for art & design, Cappellini experienced a creative evolution that has placed them at the forefront in the world of design and furnishings.
Cappellini’s collections are known for tapping new trends and far-flung talents; often described as a 'tutti-frutti' affair, with minimalism offered up alongside pop fashion, technology, and amoebic forms.
