What sort of lifespan might one expect to get from something like that? :scratch:


Glulam structure 120+ years, cladding 60 as long as you get the timber spec and the finish right.

This is the first time I've seen this kind of thing looking like it might actually happen: morphing metal in drag-free aeroplane ailerons.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Material morphing has been a big thing conceptually in architecture for a while: stuff like cellular material which adapts according to internal / external temperature etc. I've tended to consider it a long way (ie beyond my career), but maybe not.

ImageJust had one of these beautiful things delivered
Paul Kjaerholm PK31

Obvs not an original as I don't have upwards of £10k to spend, but it's a faithful copy and stunning in the flesh/leather. A true design classic

Bet you're in the minority, it's Kjaerholms most iconic design, and he produced some beauties

What you don't get from the pic is the sheer quality of the materials. It weighs a ton and omg the leather and chrome

It's surprisingly comfy. It's actually filled with "down" rather than foam and six sown-in compartments within the interior of the seat and again in the backrest stop it spreading.

My mum died in April and bless her she had nowt much to leave but, just enough for this. The idea being that this is tangible unlike a holiday or whatever as iconic style never goes out with fashion really so what she bought will stick around forever.

Agree with Eric re the Eames too

Worth remembering that all the stuff Ikea crack out wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for pioneers like Kjaerholm.

And for that alone he should be flogged in the public square.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Wouldnt it be great if Britain could still innovate and produce advancements like these. I mean not planes made of wood obviously, but when I was a little kid in the 70s we were always made to feel that Britain had always led the world in design and technology, but this was in response to Shipyards dying, and the motor industry killing itself.

I did briefly wonder with the advent of "Brexit" whether out of necessity for Britain's need to become more self sufficient we would somehow start to rebuild our industries. Be nice though wouldn't it.
