With his exhibition •100 chairs in 100 daysк Gamper celebrated the fact that there is no perfect chair by studying and reassembling every archetype in a somewhat impulsive fashion. His creation of the Sessel chair was driven by a fascination of the traditional bentwood archetype and the way in which its industrialised production has been mastered throughout its 150 year long history. Aspiring to create his first production chair, Gamper dissembled the bentwood archetype to then rejoin the components to create the Sesselкs form. Rather than aiming to revolutionise the bentwood chair, Gamper decided to tweak the iconic original. He intelligently added strength to the joint, through square bentwood panels eliminating the need for a supportive ring and creating a more angular aesthetic.
