Impulsive Furnishing Unitby designspace | 27.03.13
For the furnishing of the ‘C-Fabriek’ exhibition at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven (Netherlands) Christian Fiebig (Germany), Itay Ohaly (Israel) and Thomas Vailly (France), developed a new series of furniture with a new production unit. With the production unit a whole furniture factory is reduced to the size of a standardized plywood palette, which can be shipped and produce anywhere. The designers used a CNC machine on a plywood pallet to produce a range of bright furniture that can be flat packed and easily assembled.
We met Itay Ohaly in Israel and exhibited his work at the gallery. He finished his master program at the Design Academy Eindhoven and since then, he says, he is a happy designer. His projects assimilate a diverse palette of materiality, technique, craftsmanship and language that we love.
With 861 submissions from 71 countries, we are glad to share this project is one of the nine finalists of the Frame Moooi Award 2013, honoring the world’s best contextual product design. The Award Ceremony will take place on 10 April during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
