BitR – Beauty in the Raw… that was the idea in the beginning. And it is still dominant in the final result:

In times of undeliverable goods and increasing prices of material I decided to literally emphasize the Beauty in the Raw and develop a product out of cheap, raw, maybe even ugly material – but with the aim to make something precious and beautiful out of something cheap and unattractive.

The result is a chair with armrests that is made out of reinforcement steel rods (the ones that are used as a reinforcement mesh in concrete walls). The rods have a ribbed pattern and tend to rust. But in the end these „mistakes“ result in ornaments and thus contribute to the soul of the design.

The geometry of the chair is characterized by circles. The seating surface is round, the armrests follow a circle and the backrest is bent according to a section of a circle as well. Seen from the top it almost looks like rings on the water after a drop hit the surface. Moreover the base is assembled of only four rods (two for the back legs and one each for right and left side of front leg, armrest and aprons). Upholstered seating surface and backrest, as well as little discs as feet round out the overall appearance.

This is just the first product of a whole collection which could consist of chairs, armchairs, bar stools, tables, side tables, benches, etc.
