Each stand was framed by a wooden box mounted on a trestle table, enabling each design to create a little world where anything might be possible.
In Werner Aisslinger’s world: “A chair is born from a steel corset! After the removal of the corset, a unique chair is revealed — truly singular, because nature cannot be programmed to deliver a certain result… (or can it!?)
…The chair is no longer produced in the classical sense of the word. Instead, it grows of its own volition in a greenhouse or on a field. When it has reached maturity, the steel corset is opened and removed, revealing a naturally grown chair.”
The title of the project “The Chair Farm” reflects the utopian ambitions of this this Berlin-based designer, who imagines huge “product plantations” in the future.
It certainly makes you think about what might be possible…
