French designer Patrick Jouin’s stool is named because it is created in one shot. All of the moving mechanical parts are created in one laser sintered print and the stool emerges from the printing machine complete–no assembly required. The stool can only be made by three dimensional printing. One Shot can be collapsed, like an umbrella, or opened into a stool by simply pulling or pushing the handle on the seat of the stool.
Part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York.
Berlin designer Peter Scherer has designed the Aluminium Chair comprised of open loops and sleek curves. The 8mm water-cut aluminum seating was constructed with the objective of folding the 2d cutout into a 3d shape. Its elegant, continuous form makes it hard to judge where the material starts and ends.

The striking appearance of the Allumette sofa, table and chair is attributable to its filigree framework design in hardwood sourced from the Arura Vermelho tree. Here, forces and counterforces interplay to accept loads. Elegance and originality combine with stability. The non-varnished wood with its metallike tone is finely polished, allowing its sensual presence to develop fully. The Allumette sofa offers a high degree of seating comfort – and adds an extremely prestigious touch to living spaces and reception areas thanks to its sturdy and distinctive appearance.
