|Bamboo and cotton, (78 x 212 x 75 cm)
’For the unexpected visitors who stays overnight’.
The sofa is designed by engineer, Claus Molgaard and Ole Jensen.
From the beginning it was the ambition to create a piece of furniture
with a new and spontaneous functionality, with manufacturing and
material selection based on real environmental analysis. The development
is done in collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark,
(Quantitative Sustainability Assessment — Department of Management
Engineering) Professor, Ph.D. Michael Zwicky Hauschild, Anji Bamboo
Technical Centre, China, and the world’s largest manufacturer
of cotton mattresses, Innovation Randers.
|The manufactured sofas are prototypes. Shown for the first time
at the exhibition "It’s a small world" at the Danish Design Centre,
Copenhagen, from August 28, 2009 to January 31st, 2010.
