    Collectable chairs?

    Discussion started by misteraven - Oct 19, 2004

    This one could probably fit in the UNTITLED forum section as well, but anyhow... I just pulled this off of http://members.lycos.co.uk/hurtyoubad/blog/blog2.php and thought it was kind of cool.

    Industrial Product Design

    Chairfix
    A new chair by Ben Wilson - 3 chairs are routed out of one sheet of 8x4 15mm Birch faced ply-wood or MDF. 126 flat pack units will fit on a standard euro pallet. The excess wood is its own packaging. Easily assembled in minutes by the end user. Chairfix was inspired by Airfix model kits and is easily assembled by the consumer useing a mallet. No glues screws or fixings are needed. To launch this new product I asked a selection of artists to customise the chairs and the work was shown in the experimental gallery at the 'Aram Store' from mid September to mid October. There it was spotted by Simon Porter which led to the collaboration between Ben Wilson and Stussy. A limited edition of 50 Chairfix Stussy stools were made.

    Ben works as a product/industrial designer and is perhaps best know for his Lowrider bike designs in the nineties. Ben's products range from patented steady cam rigs for Digital Video to flat pack furniture, always working on new and innovative products. Clients include Levis, Nike, Adidas, Audi and Manfrotto.

    i'd like to point out that i was doing 'custom' smoke detectors, tea pots, toasters, mixers and other household appliances years ago. so when motherfuckers try coming out and saying they flossed it first, tell em to eat a dick.

    really though, this whole 'culture' shit is getting out of hand. i'm about to start building all my own furniture (literally). this is more than i can deal with.

    Raven you should post pics of the inside of your crib. I just imagine your shit all glass, black, chromes and various bright colors on various objects, with some fine wooden trim here and there.
