Graduation Project

Daantje de Klein

Department: Man and Mobility


Did you learn how to build towers, bridges, tents or kitchens from only wood and rope as a child? If you were with the scouts you would have. To show the beauty and fun of it all, Daantje Klein used the so-called pioneering or lashing technique for an everyday interior object. Did you think scouting is for nerds who like it rough? Take a look at this elegant do-it-yourself design chair. ‘Pioneer’ comes as a flat pack with nothing but twined cotton rope and beech wood sticks. With the help of an online video you can construct your own chair in a few hours. Just learn the ropes and take a seat!
