A set of 4 prototypes, all variations on the same concept. Developed and produced during a residency in Belgium. All chairs share the same grid, a grid that can be used in endless variations, independently from the materials used.
HELSINKI — Already since the seventies, Enzo Mari was working on the concept of DIY-design with the publication of Autoprogettazione. With this HKI chair, I give this concept an update tho create an awareness of design, environment and durability. This chair is designed and produced during a stay in Helsinki, with found materials only.
This chair was constructed with the help of the book ‘How to construct Rietveld Furniture’. In constructing Rietveld’s furniture, one moves through the proportions, stability and joining techniques to the sculptural qualities. Understanding a design by re-creating it.
