#114 de Architekten Cie.
Global economy, mass production and consumption has amassed material for countless generations. Worldwide produce and stock is growing out of all proportions. Global warming combined with limited supply of resources and energy, are forcing us to search for new alternatives.
RE use is a chance to give a second life to once produced and used materials.
Ono RE chair is reborn by means of left over and used stuff without any particular purpose, stored in my garage. Production has been limited to the use of low technology: rental tools, human power, zero energy. In order to not disturb the every day working process, and to minimize costs for rental tools, production has been taking place on weekends in my naturally ventilated garage, assisted by my family.
Materials used: central heating pipe, pipe isolation, plastic binders
Tools used: pipe cutter, pipe hand curver, scalpel
