The Seam Chair and bench by Chris Kabel won this year’s Dautch Material Prize. The furniture pieces are made from a single material, polypropylene which is cheap, non toxic and completely high-grade recyclable. Using a completely innovative technique, Kabel shaped the material into lightweight and rigid furniture pieces.
The low-tech approach used to create the Sean Chair and bench can have many more furniture as well as high tech applications. The woven polypropylene material used by Kabel is called Pure and is produced by Lankhorst. By applying extreme heat Kabel was able to harden the pliable material that composed the Seam Chair and bench so that it would be capable of holding weight without collapsing.
