german designer marc ulm worked 7 years in a bookstore before enjoying the pleasure of becoming really creative. he went to the hfg offenbach where he just completed his pre-degree with ‘trilas’, a dynamic seating for the everyday life.
marc ivited me to sit on one of the chairs. he told me to sit on it as I would sit on a horse. ‘trials’ forces you to sit straight without losing a ‘playfully active feeling’. the ‘elastomer-kugel’ in the centre is normally used for sealing in non-return valves from hydraulic fluid, water and air. In this case it allows more flexibility for marc’s design.
