Aisslinger‘s Chair Farm considers the way we consume furniture: instead of importing items for use, we can nurture and shape them ourselves and then harvest them locally instead of having them manufactured in a far-flung factory. The design minimizes resource use and waste, making it an exceptionally sustainable alternative to standard chairs.

Aisslinger has been experimenting with advanced sustainable technology for years. In many ways the Chair Farm represents a natural evolution of some of his previous pieces, like the “Hemp chair” he launched at last year’s Milan Furniture Fair.
