Stools and chairs in the Edelweiss collection come in both perforated and solid backrest versions, all featuring overtly interlocked backs and seats to demonstrate the merits of their plywood materiality.
"[The chairs] combine the comfort of an ample surface with the formal and constructive elegance of Swiss design," said Billiani. "[The pieces pose] a game of balancing of forces of pressure and tension that simulates a micro-work of architecture."
Bestenheider made reference to traditional Alpine chairs that share the slotted construction between the seat and backrest.
A perforated version features ten punched-out circular voids in its backrest, that become "graphic signs that maximise the experimentation with reduction of material".
The seats are designed for use in contract projects and come in a range of finishes and upholstery options.
