Minimal Techno Arm Chair by Sebastiaan Van Beest

Home > Winners > #124252


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Minimal Techno

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Arm Chair

INSPIRATION:
Japanese minimalism and the use of negative space are the main inspirations for this project.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a prototype arm chair which is constructed from recycled solid steel and repurposed bamboo hardwood flooring. It has a matte black coating with brushed brass screws to hold the bamboo slats in place. The design is meant to feel delicate, yet strong and robust. Because of the thin steel and bamboo, this design has amazing flexibility and is quite comfortable to sit in for long periods of time.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This design was made with the use of negative space being in the forefront. It is designed to feel as though not much space is being consumed, yet has a large presence. the construction is very strong and can hold weights that exceed 250lbs as tested.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project was conceived in Vancouver, Canada on march 26 2021 and completed on march 30TH 2021

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This is the first arm chair I have brought to fruition. I wanted it to make a statement piece and be sustainable. all of the materials except the screws are from recycled material. I am still sourcing recycled brass to make this a fully recycled product. The chair consists of only three materials, which makes it easy to reproduce. I am looking into ways to make this product more compact for shipping purposes when it goes to production.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
H24" W27" L30"

TAGS:
Chair, Modern, Minimalism, Negative space, Reclaimed, upcycled

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The biggest problem with the design of this arm chair, was to find a way to have a comfortable and delicate, yet strong arm chair while using the least amount of materials. Thus using solid steel and hard wood was the way to go to achieve the desired effect. Light, flexible, sleek and strong.
