L22 chair wave by pilotwave for liblab
based out of portland oregon, pilot wave, the design duo formed by matthew burke and kyle kennedy have been asked by
libLAB taipei to develop and fabricate 60 chairs for the L22 event space. because the space is conceived for story telling
(through food, retail, and events) an installation is created to reflect on the theme in three parts.
spatial restrictions meant that the seating needed to be collapsible when not in use and take up as little room as possible
along a 30 meter wall. through prototyping they developed a solution that allowed the chairs to unfold and be stored
hanging along the wall, allowing them to appear as though they are dancing along a gentle curve. the installation was
constructed from baltic birch plywood through a combination of CNC fabrication and traditional woodworking techniques.
