The latest project from cross-cultural design collective Out of Stock is Naked Chair, earning it's name from it's minimal wooden frame, folded sheet steel and barebones construction. Super light, the chair packs flat for shipping and can be easily assembled without tools (the seat & backrest are fastened together with wingnuts).
Designers Gabriel Tan and Wendy Chua from Singapore, Gustavo Maggio from Argentina and Sebastian Alberdi from Spain formed Out of Stock after meeting at the Electrolux Design Lab in November 2005.
They'll be exhibiting Naked Chair and other projects at this year's imm cologne in Hall 3.1 at Stand Q.032a.
