The BRUK armchair from Black Owl is made of steel and organic wool felt, the oldest known textile. Felt-making is not very popular nowadays, but it is widely practised in Belarus, primarily for a type of footwear called Valenki.
Black Owl used this underrated material to explore felt’s natural qualities and unique characteristics. The felt is processed by hand using a traditional technique that requires no seams. The felt is made of organic wool from Belarussian sheep that are not exposed to chemicals and are kept in high standard farm conditions.
The frame of this armchair is made of steel.
