Re/Born, Chair out of garbage
The objective of this work was to create a product out of a pile of stainless steel garbage. The challenge was to end up with a functional and elegant product that would be the best result possible considering all the constraints that the context brought.
The ideation process was totally different of my usual one. My tools were my hands, my observation to find materials that could result in something interesting and mental with physical construction of the object.
This chair is the result of trial and error. To get to the final form I constructed 4 prototypes, to find the perfect balance between shape, ergonomics and resistance. The model was constructed with my own hands and simple workshop machines.
