Individual and sustainable furniture made from organic sheet with reclaimed textiles

inBETWEEN – Project start /

Seating furniture should be stable, attractive and comfortable. As a result, it often consists of a load-bearing body with upholstery. Designer Jonathan Radetz has a completely new approach to this. With the support of the Fraunhofer WKI, he is developing a chair whose seat shell and upholstery are made from organic sheet in a single step. Discarded and recycled textiles are utilized for the fabric. Furniture made in this way is lightweight, can be produced inexpensively, and offers a wide variety of materials and shapes. Chairs are just the beginning - the technology can be transferred to other areas of application.
