Weinerchaise received praise at 100% design 

andy martin workshop has sold the first piece of the ‘weinerchaise’ editions after receiving high praises at 100% design, where the chair was exhibited as part of the 100% inspiration feature.

The ‘weinerchaise’ is a result of Andy Martin’s response to the brick as an inspirational object: “It is such an iconic British building material and I thought it worth pursuing for inspiration. Individually a brick seems characterless but with others has the possibility to be poetic,” says Martin.

It is constructed entirely of extruded and wire cut bricks using the thin set joint method and resin bonding. The bricks are stacked and bonded accurately in a mould and once set carved by hand to the designed shape. The piece was produced with the help of Wienerberger bricks, the world’s largest and most innovative brick manufacturers.
