To create this quirky seat, the designers at Fábrica combined two disparate sources of inspiration: a neighbourhood soccer game and the springs in a torn-apart sofa. Thirty-two radial springs were graft­ed onto an old soccer ball at the centre to hand-make child and adult versions. The chairs are harnessed with metal buckles and galvanized wire, then loosely upholstered with guaipe, colourful rags fashioned out of scraps from Guatemala’s clothing industry. ­
