More than just a snack
Ton and Lucie Koldova have created a solitary piece for imm cologne 2018 that has a very distinctive character.
Chips hits the mark. The commanding, airy backrest, which also forms part of the chair base, resembles the typical shape of a potato chip. The backrest stands in strong contrast to the massive seat, which is supported by moulded plywood. In addition, seating comfort is enhanced with a removable back pillow.
Next to its sensual shape, Chips is interesting for its manual wood-bending production
all begins with steaming the beechwood in special steam baths, where it stays for several
hours. Once steamed, the wood is placed into metal moulds and secured by a special flange
that applies pressure and allows it to be shaped into a new form. The wood is then dried, left
to acclimatise for several weeks, sanded, stained and varnished. In Bystřice pod Hostýnem
furniture has been made this way since 1861.
