stamping chair by THINKK Studio explores innovative techniques

 

Bangkok-based THINKK Studio creates Stamping Chair, crafted from perforated steel sheet as a fusion of creativity and industrial expertise. The chair is the result of a collaboration between the design team and a manufacturing company seeking to enhance its production capabilities. Traditionally focused on manufacturing small steel parts through punching machines, through this project the company explores new avenues and techniques and maximizes its existing machinery guided by the creative studio. The design applies perforated steel sheets, transformed through a corrugated punching pattern into a seat that merges strength and comfort.

The design team at THINKK proposes the utilization of the manufacturers’ expertise and equipment to punch a larger sheet size and create a functional chair. The company embarks on its inaugural journey into producing furniture of this scale. Embracing innovation, the design incorporates a corrugated punching pattern, strengthening the steel sheet to ensure a seat sturdy enough for comfort. ‘The project stands as a testament to our unwavering belief in the transformative potential of the design process to uplift and empower manufacturers in innovative ways’, shares the creative studio, and continues, ‘the Stamping Chair is a symbol of collaboration, perseverance, and the boundless possibilities that emerge when creativity meets ingenuity’.
