Ronen Kadushin (b.1964) is an Israeli designer who lives and works in Berlin. His pioneering combination of the open source concept with furniture designing was materialised in his founding of Open Design in 2005. Kadushin has grown a range of furniture, lighting and objects available for anyone to download and recreate using computer-controlled cutting techniques.
This particular chair was made faithfully from using Kadushin’s stunning Flatveld chair design. Made from laser cut 6mm steel sheet which has then been hand bent into shape. It has slowly oxidised over time giving it a lovely patina with beautiful earthy tones. The chair’s stunning lines and shape were a result of Kadushin’s desire to pay homage to Gerrit Rietveld iconic Red and Blue Chair, 1917. One in 6mm aluminium, made by Ronen himself, appears in the Bröhan Museum collection in Berlin.
