Description

The monolithic seat of the “Ermis” Chair follows simple and ergonomic lines and is robotically crafted with a single spiral plastic thread that follows the geometry. The layer orientation constantly follows the geometry of the chair via a slight rotation. As a result, the chair is strong with minimal material usage. At the same time, this approach creates a graphic texture on its surface.

Design studio The New Raw goes zero waste by creating a limited series of the “Ermis” Chair, which is crafted from the waste material of their in-house production facilities in Rotterdam. By using this material resource, they give a new life to their own waste and, at the same time, create “one of a kind” objects of high durability. In this limited edition, the “Ermis” Chairs are made with batches of different colored production wastes which provide a unique identity to each piece through unexpected color transitions and gradients.

About the designer


The New Raw crafts plastic waste with robots.   The New Raw is a research and design studio based in Rotterdam (Netherlands) founded in 2015 by architects Panos Sakkas and Foteini Setaki with the ambition to give new life to discarded materials through design, robots and craftsmanship.   The New Raw develops its own (digital) craftsmanship techniques through a formal and technical language that highlights the texture and the layer-by-layer character of its in-house robotic manufacturing process. The exploration of the possibilities that the robotic techniques provide transform plastic waste into beautiful and meaningful products that are 100% circular.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
