Klaus is a chair made of materials that would otherwise be thrown away.

KLAUS
my chair made of recycled materials
the original frame
Klaus was a university project. All students received a broken iron corpse of an old school chair that had been thrown out. We had four weeks to create a chair that could support our own body on the frame given.
 
My chair, Klaus, had been straightened, sandblasted, spray painted, cut 5cm from height and then covered with hand-cut pieces of cow leather. 
 
The geometry of the cow leather pieces came from the different shapes and sizes of the waste leather pieces i could get- i had to find a basic module, that could be used as a tessellation.
