Seam Chair & Bench

by Chris Kabel

A continuation of Chris Kabel’s outcome of Droog’s Dry Tech III project, Seam chair & bench are made of an inexpensive industrial packaging textile that is sewn into the form of the object.

To gain rigidity, the textile outfit is filled with sand and placed in a high pressure high temperature oven (autoclave), in which the textile melts and cures. The sand is removed leaving a hollow interior and a strong yet lightweight chair and bench.
