Designer Boris Dennler’s CD Chair

Few objects like CDs have had such a strange, short but very intense life cycle, symbols of one of the greatest technological innovations and then soon obsolete objects for fetishists of an analog world.
Designer Boris Dennler thought about how to give these objects a new life, thinking that if they are no longer needed to play music and movies, at least they can be transformed into other objects. thus was born the Compact Disc Chair,” composed of 887 deformed, iridescent, and luminous CDs and DVDs.

The structure of the chair was given by modifying CDs through heat, then attaching them to a wooden core through screws and glue. It is a project whose primary purpose is to investigate the possibilities of recycled object design, an experimentation that Boris Dennler has been pursuing since 2004, when the Swiss designer began to focus on recycling materials.
From past and impractical products, the CD Chair discs thus appear as part of an avant-garde, contemporary and experimental project that reopens a thousand possibilities and shows new angles from which to gurd an object that has been part of the lives of many for at least two decades.
