An Origami Game Inspires New Seating by MUT Design and Ames
Whether you call it a fortune teller, a cootie catcher, or, in Latin America, a comecocos, you would no doubt recognize the origami finger game children have been playing since time immemorial. The paper toy’s familiar shape is the latest everyday object to inspire Spanish studio MUT Design, which collaborated with German-Colombian furniture company Ames on Coco, seating that references the game’s folding pyramidal forms. A seam-free acrylic textile woven on horizontal handlooms in the Bolivar region covers the foam-core armchair and ottoman. The upholstery colors appear solid but, up close, reveal variegation, with yarn threads in contrasting and tonal hues giving the impression the chair is ever-changing.
