Piz for Dietiker is based on an upholstery material sandwich which is suspended within a metal frame. The material sandwich consists of a lasercut honeycomb core between a top and bottom layer of material. The cavities of the core are filled with a random array of scrap foam pieces. The pieces potrude upwards creating a sculptural upholstery surface. The layers are sandwiched and fastened by stitching which follows the same path as the lasercut of the honeycomb core. The laser path and the stitching path are computer guided and can vary indefinitely thus creating industrially produced pieces with a luxurious ‘one of a kind’ feel. The concept of Piz is a translation of the way Dietiker recycles wood scraps into new pieces of furniture in the upholstery context.
