SOON AT THE REFUGIUM :: e27: LOUIS CHAIR
This chair grew out of an effort to transfer metal from 2D to 3D into furniture solutions. Stretching a laser cut steel sheet up to maximal strain creates a static equilibrium. With this technique, a metal sheet just 3 mm thick was turned into a rest-chair, resembling a baroque Louis XIV seat.
Prototype – looking for manufacturer Powder coated steel. 56 cm x 78 cm x 58 cm. The Berlin-based design agency e27 was established by Tim Brauns, Hendrik Gackstatter and Fax Quintus. Its activities combine web-, graphic-, corporate and product design. (mb)www.e27.com REFUGIUM (BERLIN AS A DESIGN PRINCIPLE) – JUNE 5-9 / BERLIN TEMPELHOF. http://dmy-berlin.com/
