RETURN TO DEFAULT

WHAT
Three standard office seats have been digitally stretched, blown up and morphed. The off-size frames were 3D-printed, then traditionally upholstered and reintroduced into the office.

WHY
Just as it is important to recycle materials, Moreno Schweikle and Janne Schimmel believe that it is vital to recycle shapes. They took three functionally perfect, yet uninspiring office chair designs, digitally manipulated their DNA, and relaunched them into the physical world.

HOW
With the help of digital toolkits, faintly familiar mutants are created. An ordinary desk chair is stretched into a three-seater sofa, a lean conference chair is blown up into an overstuffed version and twelve office stools have melted into a majestic lounge chair.

QUOTE
We try to bridge the gap between the digital and physical world.
