These Unique Seats Are Made Through Reverse Engineering

These unique seats are what happens when you take a design process, turn it backwards and throw away conventional design logic. Philipp Aduatz took his normal way of working on furniture and reversed it completely. By getting rid of the rule book, Philipp gained the ability to create something completely new.

The process that Philipp used is called reversed processing and it sees him doing what would typically come last, first. He also decided to use strange materials like paper mache and gloss to create a visually offbeat but pleasing piece.

Rather than creating from scratch Philipp buys an already made, finished product and starts to add or take away from it as desired. When that process is done, the finished product is glossed with both high and dull gloss to create contrast.
