Dirk Marwig’s Gap-Chair No.6 (Fir wood from a container with plexi-glass, height: 105cm, width: 42.2cm, depth: 76.5cm, Dirk Marwig 2017)

Gap-Chair 6 crop

Yet another Gap-Chair where the seat part is not directly connected to the seat back, this time constructed with wood rests from a renovation container and with plexi-glass which was also found in a bin. I designed this version with an extreme long seat back giving the bottom part a “fold” with a 90 degree angle. I wanted to make a new version of my trademark ‘Gap-Chair’ giving it a tough, blunt, constructivist look.
Dimensions: seat height: 48cm, seat width: 42.2cm, seat depth: 43.5cm
If you should copy these chairs please give me (Dirk Marwig) CREDIT for the DESIGN. Only fair!

Gap-Chair 5 various angles (1)

Note: Throughout ‘chair design history’ no wooden chairs where the seatback is Not directly attached to the seat have been designed or produced. The only ones that exist are my 5 “Gap Chairs”.
*I took old scaffolding wood from a construction site next to my house and converted it into my 5th “Gap-Chair”. Arrest me!
