Description
Eike "Ike" Waltz MdesRCA (Master design Royal College of Art) pays homage to all the designers who attempted or completed a successful or a failure of a sleek indoor-outdoor chair design. The Slit-Fit-Chair (2014) weaves together the lower back silhouette of a potential client with his or her personal God given slit configuration. The Slit-Fit-Chair creates something entirely new as it only addresses your slit. Lightweight and durable, the Slit-Fit-Chair Chair has a narrow, almost razor-sharp seat interface, targeting your personalized levels of pain tolerance on an historic level. Made in the USA. Eike Waltz shares his approach to chair design that has been inspired by clean lines, details, graceful proportions, quality craftsmanship, and focus on function. Waltz emphasizes that the natural beauty of materials is all the ornamentation a chair needs. This approach to a chair design results in simple, graceful, well-constructed chairs. When designing his chairs, he also factors in cost and customers' budgets. One of the advantages to his design approach is that the light, graceful lines are partially accomplished through the use of smaller or thinner detail. This helps keep material costs to a minimum and reduces labor. When reducing price and cost, Waltz will never compromise the integrity of a piece. Learn his game-changing insight into chair design in his book!
