Layered Chair

A piece of furniture that resembles the technique architects use for recreating the topology of a landscape. Beautiful.
Slow Chair

Inspired in rapid prototyping processes, Mathias Bengtsson creates a beautiful piece half way between furniture and art. He first modelled the final shape of the armchair in clay, and then sliced it into two thousand layers of recycled paper coated with a thin film of glue, later assembled and glued together with pressure and heat.
The final output has the richness of forms and shadows of a textile, and the use of both white and black paper sheets donates the chair with a double face: a soft, lighter one when only the edges of the layers are visible and a stronger and somehow more agressive one when the edges do not coincide.

You made some decent factors there. I seemed on the web for the issue and located most individuals will associate with together with your website.

Wow, very interesting article. It?s funny how history can be twisted in so many different ways. These photos certainly give us clues, but I guess we?ll never know the true story.

Just wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your posts. Don't have much to add, cheers!

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
