‘A Restless Chairacter’: flexible chair by Pepe Heykopp

Design talents currently in its fourth year at the imm Cologne, is presenting a showcase of design projects by students, recent graduates, young professionals and design studios. It is divided into the three events: [d3] contest, [d³] professionals and [d³] schools.

At imm Cologne 2008, in total 120 independent designers and studios as well as 21 universities and polytechnics from the fields of architecture and product design showed their new developments to the exhibitors, visitors and journalists.

First prize of the [d3] contest awards was given to Pepe Heykopp from the Netherlands with his flexible chair ‘a restless chairacter’. All joints of the ‘restless chairacter’ are made of rubber, in order to enable slight movement.

Phillipe Malouin from Canada received  the second prize for his inflatable ‘grace table’, and the third place was awarded to Jacob Brinck from Germany with his desk ‘clark’.

During the forthcoming imm Cologne 2009 the 6th edition of [d3] contest will be on show in Cologne from January 19th to 25th 2009.
