Contio

The idea behind Contio is to design one chair with different expressions and attitudes, one chair wearing different clothes. Its concept is built around the notion of “meetings”. Matilda Lindblom designed a chair that embodies the meeting between materials and meetings between the manufacturing process and craftmanship. Contio is part of her master thesis at Konstfack University in Sweden in which she wanted to find out how different one and the same chair can become. The result is seven chairs with small variations that suit different people.

The winners of the competition will be announced in Hall 10.2 of the koelnmesse in Cologne on September 8th 2013 at 5 p.m. during the unique hour event. There will be three prizes awarded by a jury and an audience award which will be determined by online vote at gardenunique.de/youngstars.
