Hay Nobody Chair
Designed by Boris Berlin & Poul Christiansen, Danish design company Komplot used a manufacturing technique borrowed from the car industry to mold recycled plastic water bottles into the sleek, stackable sitters. Says a Hay spokesperson, “This is the first chair ever made with the textile alone as the construction. The material used is industrial felt mainly made out of recycled plastic bottles. The felt is put into a huge form press and heated up – when the chair comes out of the press its done,” which is a very efficient-sounding process, to us. The chair has been shortlisted for the Craft and Design Biennial 2007 Prize; see the write-up and a pic of what the Nobody Chair looks like when it travels in packs, after the jump.
