A New Designer Manifesto: Stop Designing Chairs!

Paola-Pivi

TIM MALY 12.05.11

In 2012, Helsinki will be the World Design Capital. To celebrate, Eero Yli-Vakkuri and Jesse Sipola of Ore.e Ref. have a simple challenge for designers all over the world: Don’t design a chair.

As the designers write:

We believe that the world already has enough chairs. Designing new ones only takes time away from renovating the ones we already have. Consider this the ultimate challenge for you to rethink how sustainable design should be manifested. If not that… Then think about the amount of time you’ll save when you don’t have to design chairs for a year.
