repetitio by thomas albertsen

Repeat a shape, and thereby create a new shape. It's the simple idea behind the chair
Seat and backrest consists of five identical slats spaced about a slightly bent steel pipe,
which forms a small part of a circle. The slats are mounted on a conventional steel frame
by leading the frame through each slat.
'Repetitio' has a subtle sculptural expression. It represents a simple and stylish piece of
furniture that upon closer examination clearly explains the concept.

I believe design should come from within and be something personal, I do not follow much
of fashion and the various trends I'm more interested in my own ideas. But when I call the
design I'm making for Danish is it because I was raised with the Danish way of doing
things in all aspects of life.
For me, Danish design is, honest, but with humour. For me form must follow function and I
think that Danish design does this really weel.
