The Kolho Chair by Made By Choice Promises the Moon and Delivers a Giant Leap for Design
Five decades after Neil Armstrong took that “one small step for man,” multimedia artist Matthew Day Jackson collaborates with the Finnish design brand and Formica Group on a custom surface that replicates, to scale, the surface of the moon. Together they developed custom steel-press plates that imprint texture 80 microns in depth derived from images taken from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft. Jackson then sculpted furniture in the material, most notably a dining chair—Kolho by Made by Choice—with a laminate-veneered plywood back and seat supported by a CNC-carved frame. Kolho, by the way, is Finnish for sturdy.
