Point by Paul Smith / Fritz Hansen Chairs

A triple effort on this one. New York Textile company Maharam, Furniture manufacturers Fritz Hansen and Paul Smith join forces to create some incredible pieces of furniture. Point by Paul Smith, a range of textiles based around Fair Isle techniques – 7 geometric patterns in total, have been applied to classic chairs such as the Egg, Swan and Grand Prix by Arne Jacosen and the Alphabet Sofa by Piero Lissoni. A play on Smith’s unmistakable multicoloured stripes, this intricate fabric brings something new to this collection of furniture design icons.
