As a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Roeland Otten had this idea about “communicative furniture in public spaces”. Ten years later, his idea was realized with the cooperation of Fonds BKVB and Materiaalfonds. This sitting alphabet contains the 26 letters of the latin alphabet in a siting form. “As a graphic designer it was a challenge to design these series of chairs that also had to form a consistent font (typeset),” as Otten explains. The prototypes are made from lacquered MDF but the designer hopes that in the future a manufacturer will produce them from a recycled material so it could be used in open spaces, with a smaller version made for kids.
