'Rings' by Zascho Petkow

'Rings' by Zascho Petkow

We remember this beautiful, minimalist wardrobe by the Berlin based designer Zascho Petkow from last year’s DMY Berlin. Soon it is going to be produced by Atelier Haussmann. The metal rings are individually mounted on the wall. By either turning them into the room or pressing them onto the wall the spatial impact of the objects slightly changes.

Architonic Concept Space III by Oskar Zieta

It is done.

After the last modifications and a tough production phase the new Architonic Concept Space designed by Oskar Zieta (Zieta Prozessdesign) was presented at this year’s imm cologne for the first time.

The modular system, which consists of a number of identical and stackable geometrical spatial structures, is made up of inflated sections welded together robotically. A well-balanced equilibrium of traction and pressure forces gives the structures maximum stability. By arranging the assymatrical modules in different positions a space is created whose structural order seems to be unrepoducible but rhythmical at the same time.

Zieta’s so called FiDU (Freie InnenDruck Umformung) technology is in many respects an especially economical process. In contrast to injection moulding, hydroforming or extrusion, all of which require elaborate and costly machines and moulds, all that FiDU needs is a die plate and a robot welder.

This year’s Architonic Concept Space III provides Oskar Zieta and his team with a platform for implementing an architectural project with this new technology for the first time.

'dS – 9045' by Philippe Bestenheider for De Sede

'dS – 9045' by Philippe Bestenheider for De Sede

The Swiss manufacturer De Sede presents these beautiful and geometrically complex pieces by the Milano based designer Philippe Bestenheider at this year’s imm cologne.

“The modular side table ’dS – 9045′ was the result ofa series of premlimiry models I made in paper which allowed me to develop the hinged and folding appearance in a playful fashion.” the designer explains.

It is available in aluminium is available in three colours: natural, bronze, brown.

“The lines of this easy chair ‘dS – 315′ are determined by a hand-sewn seam 26 metres in length. Like a crustacean’s shell, the enveloping outer skin reveals a soft inner life that affords a maximum of comfort – plus a sense of snug security.”

'H57' by Richard Lampert

'H57' by Richard Lampert

The German manufacturer Richard Lampert realised another piece of the architect and Bauhaus student Herbert Hirche. This time it is the armchair ‘H 57′ which Hirche designed for the architectural exhibition ‘Interbau’ in Berlin in 1957. Within this exhibition the famous ‘Hansaviertel’ was realised in former West-Berlin, with buildings by architects such as Oscar Niemeyer, Walter Gropius and Arne Jacobsen.

The ‘H57′ did not go into production at that time.

Prototype, 1:1 scale

The final design has been ready since the New Year, and production began one week ago. Architonic Concept Space III, designed by Oskar Zieta (Zieta Prozessdesign) and the CAAD faculty at the ETH Zurich will be celebrating its premiere to coincide with the opening of this year’s imm cologne on 19 January. In the second part of our ‘Making of’ report we would like to provide you with a few more insights into the manufacturing process.

Building the final prototype

Building the final prototype

It has to be modular and adaptable to varying stand sizes, easy to set up and dismantle time and time again, convenient to transport on a single truck etc. – this was the challenging briefing for the Architonic Concept Space. For Zieta it was an ideal opportunity to offer an initial demonstration of the versatility of his FiDU (Freie InnenDruck Umformung) light construction technique in an architectural context. This highly flexible technology, in which precision-cut and welded sheet metal sections are blown up under high pressure to form three-dimensional shapes, could almost have been created specially for this demanding task.

The result is a modular structure consisting of identical, inflated sheet metal modules. Depending on the stand size they can be placed next to one another, behind one another and even on top of one another. The core of the entire construction is the connecting points which bind the whole structure and distribute the forces involved across the supports and cross members, stabilising it in all directions.

'Munich' by Sauerbruch Hutton for ClassiCon

The Berlin based architectural practice Sauerbruch Hutton designed the Museum Brandhorst in Munich. Three different seating solutions were developed for the museum, which opened in 2009 – for the cafeteria, the foyer and the conference and lecture rooms. ClassiCon developed the designs to the point of series production in close collaboration with the architects.
