German multifaceted creative Jan von Borstel, based in Hamburg and London, is a designer, artist and consultant. Exhibiting graceful forms and simplicity with efficiency, von Borstel’s installations and products are wonderful examples of modernism in art and design. One such example is the evolution of 7 Chairs – a feature of his Snow White installation in London.
Made from laser-cut sheet metal, which is then bent and dipped in glossy white PVC, the chairs together represent the smooth metamorphosis from a relaxed lounge chair to an upright kitchen chair, which includes changes in seating height and backrest angle.
From the concept to the chair designs themselves, I really enjoy this.
