Losing Weight

Altered IKEA chair INDUSTRIELL (Designed by Piet Hein Eek)

Piet Hein Eek’s INDUSTRIELL chair has been subjected to a workshop weight loss program. The once chunky solid chair has lost 1,12 kg of material making it easier to move around. Although not intended the removal of excess material, has also resulted in a different aesthetic, as the naked wood is revealed in stark contrast to the remaining green-black paint. A very similar aesthetic to that of Piet Hein Eek's earlier waste-wood furniture for which he got famous.
