Home > Winners > #99803


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Nina & Beni

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the efficient yet beautiful forms of wooden naval structures. Boat building achieves aerodynamic forms that take advantage of the trees grain with little waste.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Two steam-bent strips cantilever over the seat to serve first as legs then armrest and finally mold to the lumbar area. The Nina & Beni chair is made from 100% sustainably sourced forests.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Solid wood chair meant to last a lifetime Seat is removable and interchangeable.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started in September 2019, was exhibited at The Stockholm Furniture fair in January then at the London design fair in September

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
To achieve the complex geometry of the Nina & beni chair we use a 5 axis CNC to cut 2 molds which we then use to steam bend the solid wood strips to their form. We then use another set of cnc-cut counter molds to make the 3d lamination.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions: W 560 x H 720 x L 500mm Weight: 8 kg (unboxed) Main materials: ash, cherry, oak or walnut Finish: Natural oils and waxes

TAGS:
Steam bending, solid wood, sustainable, chair design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Sustainability is my design objective. I use wood because it is the best short carbon cycle material, the complex shapes are steam-bent so as to create as little waste as possible. These pieces are made from quality materials and designed to last a lifetime.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part was designing and building the 3 dimensional molds needed to build the chair.
