Treasure

Year: 2005
Material: powdercoated MDF

“With Treasure, I used my childhood method of building huts and applied it into designing a chair: with a hammer, nails and found boards. When the boards were too long or short, I improvised, resulting in a chair with naïve spontaneity. The first chair was made of various old found boards criss-crossed by coincidence, assembled into one unique chair.  In order to reproduce the chair, I started using the wood leftovers from a furniture factory. As they continuously produced identical pieces of waste materials, I was able to assemble these pieces into a series of chairs as long as the manufacturer kept going on with its production.”
