Pipe design by Peter Karpf – Materia

The Dane Peter Karpf has inspected chairs and seating for 30 years. With the new `Pipe´ chair, developed for Materia, Karpf has instead revamped the traditional chair. The Pipe has a springy seat which makes its unusually comfortable. By pressing the wood in place in the frame of the chair, both the seat and back are fixed in place without using any screws.


“If something seems impossible, I force myself to think as if it were possible.
And it actually happens,” says Peter Karpf.
