Recent Uploads, Open Design Chairs by Ronen Kadushin
by Harry / December 6, 2010


Ronen Kadushin's latest exhibition, Recent Uploads, is a collection of raw cut, exposed material open design chairs at the Appel Design Gallery in Berlin.



The chairs on display are laser cut from a 6mm aluminum sheet, then bent and assembled by hand.

Twist hinge detail

Says Kadushin, "Bending a piece this thick is made easy using a hallmark detail I formulated a few years back; the integral twist hinge, which makes it possible to plan an exact bending position in a computer drawing, and retain the structural integrity of the chair, as part of the cutout."

Vague Chair, "Unresolved and restless"

"Each chair draws its inspiration from different narratives: design references,
emotional states, city life, and street art. But as a group they realize a personal
design approach that embraces free improvisation and an immediacy of outcomes,
whether a computer image or a physical object."

The collection of chairs is a design exploration into the opportunities that Open Design presents.

The chair designs are grouped into three unique structural configurations, each presented in two variations.
