Heureka! … … winner of “ein&zwanzig” – World’s finest design Talents Award. OWI supported Timo Spelleken’s bachelor graduation – he thanks by being choosen to be part of the winners of „ein&zwanzig“- World’s finest design Talents Award, drawn by “Rat für Formgebung”.
In autumn 2016 Timo Spelleken contacted OWI asking for support concerning the development of his model “Heureka”, which he has designed in the context of his bachelor graduation of FH Aachen faculty of design. Together with the OWI team some tools were found by searching catalogue of plywood parts. Tool 688 for the seat and tool 469 for the back were chosen to realize the chair Heureka. For design work OWI provided 3D data in IGES format, later OWI supplied moulding of both tools.
We are very happy to learn that Timo Spelleken has not only passed his examination but also won this highly coveted award, which even caused Heureka being exposed by Tortona Design Week during Milano fair in April 2017.
Heureka is a seating furniture for living and dining, which can be assembled by the end-consumer at home without any additional tools, screws or glue. The frame is made og 8 mm stainless steel wire.
In conjunction with specially developed fixtures, which are fixed below the seat and on the backside of the backrest, the components join together to a very stable and comfortable chair.
We will present the successful and airy model at Interzum and we would be more than happy to contribute to find a manufacturer who is ready to market Heureka.
