The sand chair; material: mortar, sand, styrofoam and pigments.
The young Swiss-born partnership Kueng Caputo has worked together since they were both students of design at the HGKZ Zurich from 2004 to 2008. Sarah Kueng and Lovis Caputo practice design as response with an emphasis on understatement and improvisation.
These chairs are made by a pigment colored mixture of sand and mortel. Layer by layer is poured in a casting mold. Then the massive object is worked to a stool by hammer and chisel. Every stool is a unique piece.
