The barstool Bender is made of 4 identical pieces of steel sheet.
But the more astonishing part about Bender is the manufacturing process: 4 identical cut out and CNC folded pieces. Thereby high costs for tools are dropped and simultaneously resources are saved.
The construction is designed for using material only at the force transferring locations. Everywhere else it’s reduced as much as possible. So the result is an economical and ecological production.
In this way I have a highly stable, material-saving and thereby light barstool, whose design is the result of the material and construction.
