Over a non-contiguous 24-hour work period, a series of experimental chairs have been produced on the site.
For this project Andy Hall set up a temporary workspace as HallMfg.
During each hour of work, one chair was designed, built, then displayed. This project is supported by materials from the ReBuilding Exchange a local organization with the mission to divert building materials from the waste stream and make them accessible to the public for reuse. This event expands the HallMfg process of secondary-use design where building and experimenting with materials results in edited knowledge and visually interesting material solutions.
Andy Hall operates Hall Manufacturing. The goal of this project is to develop relationships and community through the operation of a service workshop. Hall Manufacturing is a Chicago operation researching design for environment.
