Windstaerke 5 By Felix Pöttinger
Designer Felix Pöttinger combines algorithms-aided design and traditional craftsmanship to create ‘Windstärke 5’, a unique daybed with a water surface. The daybed has its form rooted in Mohr Polster’s specialism, as well as their tranquil living and working habitats in Andelsbuch, Bregenzerwald. A floating geometric structure with a liquid leather surface serves as the piece’s main focus, this simultaneously references Bregenzerwald’s natural landscape but is also a stage that showcases Mohr’s innovative adaptation of technology in craft, only made possible by their experience and expertise. Pöttinger and Mohr have worked very closely together, throughout both the design and manufacturing processes to arrive at the precise shape of the body–forming waves, which encourage the user to curl up and relax in their most organic forms. The design places emphasis on continuous emotional balance.
