Cunning club chair


Cunning club chair avoids using the material as a lining or upholstery, on the contrary, the idea is that the material stays in tension, working the same way as when it was used for sailing, giving back this way its dignity even though the sail has been taken into parts.

Style and Options:

Cunning Upcycle Sail Cloth – Folding Club Chair
Sail, Marine plywood, Sycamore

The MP&S (Marine Plywood & Sails) supports the fabrics manufactured from recycled ship sails. The two materials used are particularly suitable for outdoor use.

The items of the collection have been inspired by traditional folding outdoor and beach furniture in a reinterpretation of common pieces of furniture. The plastic language of the collection is strongly defined by the characteristic construction of the folding structures and the special way of achieving a folding hinge. The intensive folding and piling up of the items means that they can be collected and stored in a small space.

The wooden parts are constructed based on marine boards that are traditionally used in ship construction. The material used is birch plywood glued with phenolic resins that are broken up in a milling plotter by a numerical control which allows the material to be used to the full. The fabrics are sewn by hand as from the cutting up of the most expressive areas of the sails, which means that each piece is unique; the pieces are labeled one by one with the details of the origin of the sail


  • Length: 30 in
  • Width: 28 in

Each sail is used to produce a limited series of products, and all of them are tagged with an inscription that provides information regarding the sail ́s origins: the port it comes from, the ship, the type o sail, the original manufacturer and its numbering edition.

Some sails or parts of them have certain esthetic qualities (marks, sailmaker logos, numbers, different colors, that make them very special. We call the pieces that have been exclusively selected to emphasize these beauty characteristics Unique Editions.
