Beauty in Assembly

by Matthew Bushey, February 28, 2011

I just came across this fascinating video of the manufacturing process of one of the most iconic chairs of our time:  the Series 7 chair by Fritz Hansen.  This chair was designed in 1955 by Arne Jacobsen with a simple, graceful profile and a minimal number of parts.  The manufacturing process, however, is a complicated series of steps that involves man and machine.

The film itself is beautifully made as well:  a five-minute black-and-white homage to the creative process of product manufacture.
