20 Chairs Exhibition

Students from the danish design highschool Krabbesholm were asked to create 20 chairs in 5 weeks in collaboration with danish design collective Skive Fagforening. The chairs were to be made purely from prefabricated wood from the local DIY centre. The wood could be beams, rods, plywood, OSB and MDF. Other rules included no use of paint or colours. Above are a selection of the 20.

Themes the students were asked to consider were D.I.Y. culture, local production /mass production, machine made /handmade, craft, materiality, consumerism, sustainability, quantity etc.

The chairs will exhibited at Modtar Projects in Copenhagen until the end of April 2011.
