Melinda Molnar about the project:
‘Klaus was a university project. All students received a broken iron corpse of an old school chair that had been thrown out. We had four weeks to create a chair that could support our own body on the frame given.
My chair, Klaus, had been straightened, sandblasted, spray painted, cut 5cm from height and then covered with hand-cut pieces of cow leather.
The geometry of the cow leather pieces came from the different shapes and sizes of the waste leather pieces i could get- i had to find a basic shape the biggest possible.’
