Improvised Chairs: Building Furniture Out of PVC Pipe
Thursday, May 30, 6pm to 8pm
After winning MOMA’s Organic Design in Home Furnishings Competition with Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames were really put to this test. While gathering the financial resources to make the mass-produced plywood chairs for which they are famous, they seated themselves on homemade constructions made of discarded pipes.
This workshop — which will be held during Drink in Design on Thursday, May 30 — encourages designers of all ages and experience to improvise chairs made out of PVC pipe. There will be a demonstration of a simple design, as well as materials on hand to make smaller models. Get ideas for your own home furnishings or simply participate in a lively brainstorming session. This activity will be presented by Sean Mills.
