Joseph Felt

The Joseph Felt chair and ottoman are composed of layered wool felt pressed together with custom-made stainless steel fasteners. Both of them use the structural properties of felt to create soft seating. There is no need for a cover or an inner frame due to the integral construction method of the woven felt loops.
