Endless Chair by Dirk Vander Kooij
Updated: Jan 16
Endless Chair is one plastic string, made out of old refrigerators, crafted by a robot, into a chair. By combining different techniques, Dirk was able to design an automated but very flexible process. He taught a robot his new craft, drawing furniture out of one endlessly long plastic string. This opened the possibility for Dirk van der Kooij to design in the good old-fashioned way, making a chair, evaluating, refining, making a chair, evaluating, refining and making a chair or developing an infinitely large collection of variations, Endless.
Dirk Vander Kooij won the Dutch Design Award in 2011 with his Endless Chairs.
