Nominated for Unique Youngstar Design Contest at spoga+gafa 2013: Klemmbrett Bank by Manuel Welsky

15 design projects by young talents are nominated for the unique youngstar award 2013. The theme of this year’s competition is “outdoor living”.

The nominated projects will be exhibited at the international garden trade fair spoga+gafa in Cologne, from September 8th to 10th. Between now and spoga+gafa we will introduce  the nominees in the garden unique category of this blog.

Klemmbrett Bank

  • By: Manuel Welsky, Manuel Welsky Design Studio, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany
  • Material: Wood, steel
  • Size: 180 x 36 x 45 cm
  • Website: www.welsky.net

The Klemmbrett Bank is based on the clip principle. The frames, manufactured from steel and coloured with powder, encompass the wooden plates, thereby clipping them in. The design is simple as it is good: The metal grips into grooves at the top and bottom of the seat section and is secured there. This ensures that the bank can be constructed in next to no time and without any tools. Despite the unusual combination of materials, the bench conveys a suprising harmony of the elements used. Supported by the natural aesthetics, the Klemmbrett Bank invites you to sit down and relax; preferably during a comfortable break under open skies.

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.
