I don't know if I've ever received a gift that was so bad that I've wanted to set it ablaze... or if I've ever had to burn furniture for warmth. Suffice it to say that those who can afford to give or receive Supergrau's KLOEZZE probably won't be doing either, um, either. They note that "the cold season is coming and with it the time of pleasant evenings in front of a flickering fire starts [and] the right moment to start the search for lovely Christmas presents. For either situation SUPERGRAU provides the perfect product."
Given the shamelessly simple concept behind the modular seating/surface—in contrast to highly refined previously-seen designs from the German company—it's hard to argue with them:Born from the unspoilt provocative idea to top off the consumption of the superfluous and to offer a designed firewood, KLOEZZE was created: a loose piece of furniture with system character.
And there is more behind the spare parts of building bricks: Assembled in different arrangements, the product allows creative room to put together the single pieces as wished. Therefore, KLOEZZE truly is an all-rounder: its elements can be stacked up in different seating situations and decoration modules.
The name apparently refers to each individual log, as it comes in an "expandable basic set of six KLOEZZE (3x pine, 2x oak, 1x cherry wood)" for €140; larger sets of up to 44 KLOEZZE are also available. Each configuration is secured with two extra strong rubber bands in yellow or blue. "Whether KLOEZZE ends up in the fire, gets used as rudimentary furniture or emits its decorative charm next to the fireside is sublimely left to the beholder."
