Less is hardly possible. A piece of aluminium sheet just 2.5 millimetres thick is pressed into a chair that can withstand a lot. All-round recesses and curves provide stability and give the chair character. As a result, it is light, stackable and can be used in a variety of ways, both indoors and outdoors. The Pressed Chair was designed by the South Tyrolean designer Harry Thaler and is manufactured on behalf of Moormann by a high-tech supplier to the automotive industry in Bavaria. Nils Holger Moormann discovered the award-winning design 10 years ago at the imm cologne’s competition for young designers, which at the time was still organised by the German Design Council.
Since the idea of turning a flat piece of sheet metal into a likeable and stable chair is still as exciting after 10 years as it was on the first day, Moormann is now celebrating the furniture innovation in typical Moormann style: with a funny photo series that demonstrates in a humorous way how and where such a pressed chair can be used everywhere. There is also a special edition limited to 100 pieces – glass bead blasted! From the high seat (for design hunters in green?) to the ski slope and skate park or as a waiting bench at the bus stop in front of the house, the lightweight makes bella figura. It has even proved itself in a special application as a pedal boat seat at a pedal boat race. Remember: when used correctly, less becomes more – fun.
