the eder chair
The project approaches the subject of sitting not purely from design and functional aspects, but is based on a different starting point. In times when apartments can be fully furnished at once through IKEA there is a decline of quality and at the same time a fall of value. Furniture no longer accompanies one through several periods of life time but becomes obsolete after a few years and is thrown out. Basic conditions were set for this project which cross this specific development. The chair is to be produced locally, to offer solid quality for a long life cycle and to be sold at a reasonable price independently of large quantities. The design process followed these requirements. "The eder chair" is to explore the boundaries in this tension zone of quality, quantities and price and to present alternatives for furniture production.
