Camille Riboulleau

Department: Man and Living


The aim of the ‘Sillon’ chair was to create a playful and carefully detailed product which can be mass-produced. Camille Riboulleau’s project highlights the beauty of an optimized industrial production technique and investigates the possibilities to create a product which has value, even though it is made from a low-cost material. The design is based on a one-part mould with a single hollow groove which is filled with thermoplastic. As the polypropylene sets, it forms a surprisingly resilient, foldable chair which can be melted down and recycled when its lifespan is completed.
