Morten Husum Nielsen
With exaggerated extremities - like the character after which it is named - the Dumbo Chair from Danish furniture designer Morten Husum Nielsen was a contribution to KADK’s annual exhibition in Ventura Lambrate, Milan in 2015, a material-based project established in conjunction with danish producer Sika-Design that asked designers to explore Rattan and the techniques by which it can be used. The double curved membrane, creates a comfortable and flexible backrest and the sloping seat provides tensile support.
