without legs “
a chair without legs. The peerless connection between the seating surface and
the skid of the rocking chair, which has to take all the bending forces, is an
essential point of this design. It makes the chair look like delicate.
The first chair, “con tacto No. 1“, is made of round steel,
carbon and glass fibre. The essential point is the construction with the
carbon. Because there is only one connection from the seating surface to the
skid of the rocking chair. The other
characteristic is the filigree of the whole construction and the possibility to
change the seating surface.
The second chair, “con tacto No.2“, is made of two layers of
spring steel, which are connected with a twisted and riveted steel cross. The
seating surface is made of 18 different pieces of sailcloth. That was essential
to avoid any wrinkle formations, which would be uncomfortable when sitting.
models were built in the scale of 3:1, but I still would like to build the
second draft as a prototyp, someday.
