The pipe fixion chair is part of a research process that highlights the assembly and technical language of objects. Assembly is used to ornament the object.

Pipe Fixion

The Pipe-Fixion chair takes the classic tubular chair and turns it on its head, returning to the raw tube of the building site. Assembled from nineteen anodized aluminum tubes, the chair takes its inspiration from construction site materials: stored awaiting use, they are objects in the making, to be invented. The clips, the chair's backbone, solidify to become twelve black PETG carbon clamps, inspired by scaffolding fixtures and bicycle poles. The assembly clamp is not concealed, but highlighted, as it allows us to move from the tube as a structural element to the tube as a tray/surface. Pipe-Fixion catches the eye with its unusual angles and the rigidity of its seat. Without seeking comfort, the chair is a concept: a modular object that can be transformed and dismantled at will.
