Maison Gerard and Stacklab Launch Tool That Turns ‘Waste into Wonders’
This new initiative, a joint effort between Maison Gerard and Stacklab, is an online configurator that users can leverage to design custom furniture from high-quality offcuts—remnant inventory (currently metal, wood, and felt)—generated by regional manufacturers. To launch the tool, Stackabl brought together several high-profile designers with a common intent: “Turning waste into wonders.” Utilizing layers of high-quality felt offcuts, manufactured with the aid of robotics, the designers drew from historical and personal seating references to craft contemporary perches both distinctive and welcoming. The Dulces dining chair by Laura Kirar pairs the felt offcuts with maple legs. Elena Frampton’s Fast Lane accents the material with legs of blackened maple. Featuring the same wood for its base, the Madame chaise lounge by Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson sports a strip of bumble-gum pink. The Maxine bench by Benoist F. Drut combines natural maple legs with unexpected orange, lime, and sky-blue color combinations. Raki by Alexandra Champalimaud, inspired by the playful energy of a family pet, fits perfectly into a corner. And the chunky maple legs of the Querelle club chair, by William T. Georgis and Ilya Mirgorodsky, pair with playful blue-and-white felt. All six options are true conversation starters. Through Maison Gerard.
