Affordable design for all – this idea, which is as old as design itself, has lost none of its relevance. Berlin-based architect and designer Van Bo Le-Mentzel translates the concept into the digital age by designing pieces of furniture whose construction plans he puts online for people to download and build. Led by our instructor, you will build your own Weil Chair based on a design created by Le-Mentzel for the workshop at the Vitra Design Museum.
