1. Dandelion S

Wood touched by Light
Dandelion, a big bang of light

After a collaboration of more than ten years, Dandelion is Burkhard Dämmer’s latest contribution to LZF.

“…The idea comes from drawings by the German zoologist and philologist Ernst Haeckel. I was struck by the beauty of the symmetrical and geometric shapes from Kunstformen der Natur, which portrayed Haeckel’s radiolarians, microscopic organisms found in the depths of the ocean.
This first idea led me to a shape of pure geometry, the fullerenes molecule, also known as buckyball, a sphere formed by an ordered combination of pentagons and hexagons. As a result, the Dandelion resembles a wonderful shape from nature”.

2. FX10 LOUNGE CHAIR

Thomas Feichtner designed the FX10 Lounge Chair with a view to designing a chair in a closed and compact shape that is free of seams. The abstract name FX10 is actually the product name of a ski binding Thomas Feichtner designed for the Austrian ski maker Fischer previously. Due to the strong similarity of the formal approaches of both designs and in reminiscence of the numerous skis and ski bindings designed by Thomas Feichtner the chair bears the same name as the ski binding.

3. Amulet, footstool

Edward van Vliet’s Amulet series: eye-catching thanks to its shape and proportions, practical in daily use. The octagonal footstool offers an extra place to sit, but is also very handy as a side table due to its sturdy, flat seat.

Amulet I is rounded with facets at the bottom and is given extra depth thanks to the openwork vertical seams with a different colour on the inside (optional). Amulet II has facets at both the top and the bottom. Here the accents are applied in the shape of a decorative stitch that blends in or colourfully contrasts with the upholstery of your choice. Both designs are available in two sizes with different heights.

4. Order vs chaos

images_73_4

What is your side? Is your foe a spontaneous decision or the thought out plan? Logic vs intuition? Reality vs illusion? But what do you do when an analyst and an anarchist live inside you together ? Could there any harmony? So we are always in search, may be this is meaning of life….
