The Oneliner collection is a research in CNC production leading to Open Design.
The Oneliners are a collection of "directly from file" manufactured furniture: A two dimensional outline of the chair is cut from a block of foam with a CNC foam-cutting machine.The saw blade must enter the foam block, cut out the desired path and exit the block. So the product is designed as a continuous cutting line. Hence the collection’s title: Oneliners.
The outcome is a complete product with no finishes or assembly needed. The design utilizes the foam’s elastic properties in thin sections and its constructive characteristics when it is thick, to design and produce soft chairs that bounce back to shape when not in use.
