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.
