The Cloak Chair is an adaptable chair made to suit a wide variety of spaces and environments. Able to change its cloak-like covering between three distinct materials, it is a chameleon that is able to blend seamlessly into multiple contexts. Responding to the theme Jungle Protocol, I related it to transient lifestyles and the way we quickly learn to adapt to different environments. The idea is that you are living in an environment that is not yours, but you intuitively adapt to it.
The French word Cloque refers to a clothing piece used for traveling, resembling a cape, worn over the shoulders to protect the vulnerable human body from the environment.
The cloak chair has three types of cloaks -- the Outdoor version, made with durable fabric; the Winter version, made out of soft, comfortable felt; and lastly the Formal setting, made out of luxurious leather.
