Plantation chair… by Studio Aisslinger
2012 was born this chair farm concept: as simple as it is radical. A “plantation chair” produced in an agricultural Lab is an production utopia of the future…
The chair is no longer produced in the classical sense of the word. Instead, it grows of its own volition in a greenhouse or on a field. When it has reached maturity, the steel corset is opened and removed, revealing a naturally grown chair. A new way to invert production in furniture design back from globalized serial manufacturing to resource-conserving local production.
