Chris Martin, who used to be Jasper Morrison’s right hand man, designed Massproductions first furniture collection, “Tio”. The collection consists of chairs and tables in steel wire which are produced in a computer controlled bending machine. With just a few steel wires, Chris Martin has designed furniture which catches the eye and attracts the design conscious customer.“The design for “Tio” was the end result of a few months of thinking, sketching and sculpting. My point of departure was to arrange a fan of wires into a comfortable seat and then connect them in a straightforward and logical frame, which minimized the amount of steel used. So really the appeal comes from pragmatic thinking, executed within the restraints of the materials characteristics and according to an industrial production process. Sounds clinical, but the result is something I find very pleasing. For those who find steel wires too hard, we have developed an upholstered cushion to give extra comfort during long dining sessions.” – says Chris Martin.
