Course Overview

Hook up, hang out, get support, put your spin on it, hover above the ground. One chair could fit in your pocket and another could hold nine people like a merry-go-round. The now-ubiquitous hanging chair, aka the 'Sky Chair', came from Kurt's desire to create a chair that was comfortable, lightweight and time-efficient in construction. Thirty-plus years ago, Kurt disregarded preconceived definitions of "chair" and began exploring the applied physics of support from above. Here's your opportunity to follow in Kurt's footsteps by making a hanging chair of your own. You will sew your own chair on an industrial machine, combining fabric, thread, webbing, rope and sticks to shape your comfort.
