back – the slim metal frame overloaded by the fat layer

dutch designers willem kuipers and stefan de beer developed the ‘more to less chair’ as a statement that symbolizes the excessive consumption of society. to create a sustainable society we must go from more to less. under the fat and comfortable layer, there is a constructive slim metal frame that shows itself. the fat layer is as a cover for the frame and can be removed by releasing the ropes. the rope symbolizes our commitment to the current system of consumption and excess. can we escape from that?

this chair is part of a series of seats that are currently being developed, the furniture is available in several skin tones.
