maison & objet 09: 'air chair' by samuel accoceberry / creative grants VIA 2009

revealing young talents of the future, VIA presents prototypes from its annual design support program- among the 13 project grants is ‘air chair’ designed by samuel accoceberry.

the technique for this piece relies on the close interlocking of seven curved wooden laths assembled in decreasing height. the splay of the laths constitutes the back, their joining low down forms the rear base. material is honed to the strict essential, but the rhythm of the laths creates a visual effect. stacked ‘air chairs’ save space and provide graphic and colorful animation. wood, the recyclable material par excellence, is joined using biological glue.
