SOON AT THE REFUGIUM :: STUDIO HAUSEN: TMC TEXTILE MOLD CHAIR

Pioneers and innovators of geometric, self-generating and light structures such as Frei Otto and Buckminster Fuller served as an inspirationfor this graduation project at the Berlin University of the Arts by Joscha Brose, together with the Green Void by avant-garde architects LAVA, Gaetano Pesce’s ‘Up’ series for B&B Italia and the inflatable street sculptures of Joshua Allen Harris. Brose’s intention was to make furniture with a textile mold, by developing an innovative industrial furniture manufacturing process that uses the efficiency and potential of high tech textiles as well as cutting edge procedures of the textile industry. He created a textile form that can be produced cheaply since 95% of the work is done by a high-frequency robot welder and there are no costly injection molds involved. The organic textile form, or skin, gains its shape and structure by being inflated from within and filled with polyurethane foam.
