Berlin based designer Anastasiya Koshcheeva is passionate about birchbark, a natural, self-reproducing material which is not only flexible, soft, water-repellent and antibacterial, but also breathable, durable and strong. With “Sibirjak”, a contemporary lounge chair made of birchbark, Anastasiya aims to reinterpret an age-old tradition and make the conventional handcraft up-to-date.

“The chair and ottoman combination emphasizes the material aesthetics, combining traditional skills with modern processing. The horizontal alignment of the bark underlines the leather-like properties of the material, is welcoming and offers a wide comfortable seat. The textile details and the reduced geometric frame form a strong contrast to the natural birchbark.”
