Dumbo is a contribution to KADK’s annual exhibition in Ventura Lambrate, Milan 2015.
The project was a material based, hands-on project in Rattan. We were asked to explore the material and the techniques in collaboration with the danish producer Sika-Design.
The main idea behind Dumbo is the double curved membrane, creating a comfortable flexible backrest.

OAK OAK is a children's chair with a storage space for toys and books etc. The chair consists of two parts, an oak frame and a cork seat. When you remove the lid from the seat you get access to the storage compartment. The box consists of smaller parts which are assembled like a puzzle and held in place by the frame.
As cities become more populated and living space is getting smaller, our need for storage solutions is increasing. In old furniture types we can find solutions to some of the same problems we meet today. OAK OAK is a reinterpretation of the box Settle, an old furniture type known by its storage compartment under its seat.
The project approach is about rediscovering old materials using new forms of production. By take advantage of rapid prototyping I was able to gradually approach the final result by testing the aesthetic, technical and functional aspects. The results of this project demonstrate some of the advantages of new production methods such as CNC milling. The results of this project demonstrate how both process and production can take advantage of new technologies.
