Open designer collective

2016

The open designer collective shows the design vision and characteristics of each individual designer. All the participating designers work independent, but they all work on the same collection of chairs. It’s a collection because all the designs are generated from the same written description of a non-existing design that the designers receive when they participate. From the basis of this description they all design a unique chair. The collection mirrors how the different designers interpreted the description. 

 

The designs are related, the same characteristics and parts are included, but in a different way. With this chair the designers show who they are. It’s like a three dimensional buissnisscard for the designer, a way to present themselves. Open designer offeres a platform for these designers.

 

This project has been executed on an experimental level. Only one of the designs has been physically made.
