As part of his final year project at Kunsthochschule Kassel the young German designer Christof Schmidt developed this smart joining technique. The solid wooden elements of the chair are broken to measure and placed into a silicone-mould. Due to its expansion the poured in polyurethane foam infiltrates into every single wooden fibre at the breaking point and connects the pieces soundly. The foam hardens within minutes.

‘DaR’ was presented at this year’s DMY Festival for the first time.
