FOLD Serie

 

Sector             Product; Chair

Year                 2016

Material          1mm sheet metal

Metal, a strong and sturdy material, but very heavy. I was wondering how far you can go by making a complete furniture set of metal. An experiment of how less material use you need to create still a good quality furniture piece.

This set existing of a chair, stool and coffee table is made of only 1mm sheet metal. By folding it on the right spots, the thin sheets gets its sturdiness. Having good quality furniture with low material use.
