The four seasons are the characters of Embroidery Chair series by Swedish designer Johan Lindstèn for Cappellini. Expressing the encounter between the embroidery tradition passed down through generations and next-generation industrial technology, these four chairs with ash wood body and backrests with cross-stitch embroidery on tapestry wool depict painterly landscape scenes drawn from the essence of the four seasons. Manufactured with modern electric machinery simulating the process of hand cross-stitching with wool yarns, the embroidery patterns convey the Fall season with deer as its main characters and a walnut stained ash shell, Spring combines butterflies with white ash, Winter matches an arctic landscape with black stained ash, while Summer highlights the graceful colours of flamingos with red stained ash. The large wrap-around backrest and ergonomic shape of the chair ensure maximum comfort.
