Nico Less chair designed for Donar by Primoz Jeza Studio was awarded with the Red Dot, the international distinction for high design quality. nicoless_red_dot_2016_winner_02 Participants from 57 nations had registered a total of 5,214 products and innovations for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. Only products which set themselves apart considerably through their excellent design receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury. Nicoless_reddot_2016 Nico Less chair is a response to the human need to reduce our carbon imprint on the planet and to rediscover waste as an industrial material of the future. Re-thinking our philosophy of socially responsible, sustainable design, Primoz Jeza Studio has created a simple but unique chair made of recycled Felt (60% re-cycled PP bottles and 40% non-woven textile). By using just heat and pressure we achieved comfortable seating by adapting the shape to the human body. Chair base is made out of metal or wood and is linked to the seat with straps. The Nico Less chairs can be combined in compositions of various lengths or stored in vertical stacks. A tribute to the great industrial designer Niko Kralj, Nicoless chair is a revival of simplicity!
