Tube Chair is developed for the project 8 House which is designed by BIG and located in Ørestaden, Copenhagen.
The challenge with Tube Chair was to make a modern wooden chair in an industrialized context. Wooden chairs are often centered on craftsmanship which often makes them high-priced. With Tube Chair the craftsmanship is moved from the manufacturing process to the design process and product development. By using a simple wooden broomstick along with casted aluminum components a traditional material is combined with a modern material giving the chair a contemporary expression.
One of the key features of wood is that it ages beautifully and is very durable. If furniture does not take ageing well, it will be thrown away. Making long lasting furniture in design and quality is therefore the best way to produce furniture sustainably.
