The principle for creating the basic shape of Grillage is very simple: a sheet of metal with staggered grooves is folded, origami-style, and then drawn to create a mesh. Grillage tells the story of its manufacturing process (drawing, folding, creasing); it reveals everything about itself, from how it was designed to how it was produced. The wire mesh of the Grillage allows it to achieve both comfort and ergonomics with an all-metal piece of furniture.
An optional cover in a new stretchy, quilted fabric, may be added if desired for additional comfort. The Grillage Armchair is suitable for use indoors.Additional Information

Since 1955, designers and producers can apply for the prizes with the winners being presented in an annual ceremony. Winning products are presented in the Red Dot Design Museumon the premises of the historical Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen. In 2013, the Red Dot Design Museum Taipei was opened. The Red Dot Design Award had more than 15,500 submissions from 70 countries in 2014.
To manufacture Grillage, a sheet of metal, which is grooved in staggered rows, is stretched. Metal wire is then soldered to the exterior, piece by piece. The sheet thus obtained is folded at various points to create the seat.
