How did you test the chair for strength and durability?
I test each chair with my body and my personal dignity.
What was the biggest challenge for this project?
As always, the biggest challenge was: is it possible to sit on it? Experience has taught me that the shape, size and thickness of the bottle walls are essential for the project. Thicker and smaller bottles are stronger and can carry a lot of weight vertically. Large and soft ones, only in the crushed mass, have the advantage of the structure. The type of bottle determines the shape of the object.
What else would you like to do in the field of sustainability and what are you already doing?
Sustainability space is important in my work in slightly wider areas than just recycled material. For example, a sowing and growing piece of furniture, an archetype of a furniture, traces of a human body in a piece of furniture - these are topics that I have been exploring for years. Tree, air, water, soil are the basic categories in my practice, both in a metaphorical and literal sense.
What are the fundamental elements that make a brand sustainable?
I am a furniture designer, not an analyst. What seems important to me is a harmonious combination of two concepts: the past (what is best in the tradition of the brand) and the future of the brand (new technologies, research, environmental sensitivity), but creating a brand is a complicated process and it's not up to me to analyze it. As a consumer, I'll just use the words: balance, moderation.
