Berlin-based architect and rapper Van Bo Le-Mentzel is the founder of the Hartz IV Moebel initiative and website – born when Le-Mentzel registered for a weekend woodwork class. At the end of the class, he had constructed a chair; posted the design online, dubbed it the “24-Euro Chair”, and continued crowd-sourcing further ideas online, Le-Mentzel thus gathered a group of DIY enthusiasts, who are constructing modernist furniture at incredibly low cost., and named themselves Hartz IV Moebel, after Germany’s social welfare. Published by Hatje-Cantz, the homonymous book shows how to build some of this furniture –such as a cube sofa, a Berliner Hocker, or a 100-Second Lamp,.with minimal resources and cost. Both a practical guide and manifesto for affordable furniture.
