Once upon a time there was…an aluminum sheet
"Mr. Floreanini, make an aluminum chair without welding and I’ll produce it for you!”
This proposal-provocation from the CEO of SINTESI Spa encouraged me to think outside of the box, to imagine a chair made as an origami.
A few weeks later I show up to the company with a small hand drawn draft and a life scale prototype.
No waste in material, the entire chair comes out of a thin laser cut and bent sheet of rectangular aluminum, with no need of assembly with the exception of leg crossbeam, assembled with two small bolts.
The CEO kept his promise.
