ROW studio & piopio editions have collaborated on the 001 silla which they presented at the abierto mexicano de diseño 2014.


pre-existent folding chairs were painted with neon paints and modified with the addition of recycled chip foam – a heterogeneous mixture of polyurethane foam with a polyether and polyester base – all joined together with a polyurethane-based glue.

the 001 chairs were presented alongside two colorful tabletops, featuring graphics that had been printed using a flat bed digital printer. these table tops are from an upcoming collection exploring marquetry techniques using modern technology like laser cutting and high density laminated surfaces.
