Sample text

For instance, the number of layers of wood you have is crucial to calculating a price. Is it necessary to team up with technological experts when working with wood ? For the WOGG 50 chair, it was very important: in contrast to other projects, I had the impression here that we were working with experts highly experienced in molded plywood, but who were not really able to communicate this experience because the different phases of the procedure and their results are not as easy to predict as with other materials.

The challenge we faced making the WOGG 50 chair, was to push the production technology to its limits and to design a contemporary form for the year 2010, and not a chair that could have been produced just as easily in the 1950s. Charles and Ray Eames achieved excellent results with molded plywood. What were the technological and formal crunch points for you ? The price range for this chair was set very low, which was related to it being mass-produced. Combining price, technology, and the formal aspects—which is why I said that wood is tricky—was very challenging.

So we clearly wanted a backrest of a certain thickness. But then Becker said that the three or four additional layers of wood required for this idea would almost double the price. How did you arrive at the final, thinner solution? And are you satisfied with this result formally ? Yes, very much so. Because then something happened which is so obvious that I’m almost afraid to admit it. Becker’s technological experts asked why we weren’t exploiting the flexibility of molded plywood. This was such an obvious idea that it never even occurred to us.
