Smallprojects – Chaise Longue. The concept of Smallprojects’ design for a chaise longue began with the observation that fabric commonly takes on, in part or in whole, the form of the furniture it covers. To mark the relaunch of Hallingdal 65, it was decided that the Chaise Longue would take on the form of the cloth it was designed to celebrate.

Andre Fu, curator for Asia: 'Going forward we are starting to see big global brands seeking out designers in Asia. In this way the Hallingdal 65 project provides an important platform for an emerging design scene in Asia. The way I see it is that talented designers here have a considerable opportunity at this point in time - not simply to represent where they are from, but also to use this as a stage to speak to an international audience. Communication is the key to open many doors.'

Jonathan Olivares – Chaise for Hallingdal 65. What if a piece of fabric wanted to relax? How might it like to take a rest? Would it sit down? If so how would the piece of fabric like to be seated? These were the questions Jonathan Olivares and his team asked themselves when faced with the Hallingdal 65 brief.
