e15 shortlisted

By JW on January 10, 2010 in Viaduct

German design company e15 has been shortlisted for the Design Week Awards with Stefan Diez’s CH04 Houdini Chair.   Inspired by a technique used in aeroplane model making, two-dimensional plywood slabs are stretched by hand around a complex milled solid wood ring to form the back and another to form part of the seat. No nails or screws are used to hold the chairs together; rather the 2D slabs are glued to the base to stay in position, producing the shape of the chairs.

Winner of the the Award is announced in March.
