a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Award-winning London based designer Timothy Schreiber is pleased to announce the launch of the Plooop Chair at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 8-12 February 2011. Succeeding the sleek Plooop Armchair which debuted last year at London's 100% Design Fair, the Plooop Chair features the unique triple plywood loop formation Schreiber deftly crafts in this series. By applying CNC-assisted cutting along with advanced traditional craftsmanship he creates a work of seamless quality with a contemporary edge. The continuous plywood rings touch and detach at key points, melding the chair's structural elements in one fluid motion and creating an elegant and harmonious form.
Highly driven by today's advancements in digital technology Schreiber implements cutting edge equipment and techniques from development to finished product. Schreiber's designs are the outcome of his ambition to delve into and challenge boundaries between architecture, digital design, manufacturing methods and social/environmental sustainability. Through this exploration he has achieved an award-winning body of work which includes the iconic Morphogenesis chaise and the artificial intelligence "Universal Table Generator," which received the coveted Red-Dot Design Award and has resulted in the "e-volved" table now produced by Dutch high-end manufacturer FueraDentro.
After earning his degree in Architecture and Design at Bauhaus University, Germany and Westminster University in London, Schreiber has worked with today's leading architectural practices and has collaborated with high-profile companies across Europe, Australia and Asia. During this time he has worked on some of today's most exciting projects such as the 2008 Beijing Olympics Watercube. He founded his own studio in London in 2005 focussing on furniture and object design.
