Lajt

Janez je pred leti, mislim da leta 88 naredil genijalen stol, ki je moderen še danes. Ker sem mu že davno obljubil, da bom naredil spletno stran s katalogom, pa tega še vedno nisem naredil, postopoma tule obljavljam njegova dela skupaj s komentarij, ki jih je spisal približno ob nastanku posameznega dela, zbrana pa so v njegovi knjigi “Stoli / Chairs I”

Stol LajtVečkrat mi je bilo rečeno, da so moji izdelki masivni in težki. Zato sem se odločil, da naredim kar se da lahek stol. Najprej sem napravil stol iz macesnovih palic preseka 2\2 cm in z masivno sedežno površino prav tako iz macesnovine. Stol sem zavetroval z aluminijastimi oporami. Macesnov Lajt tehta 2030 gramov. Pri naslednjem Lajtu sem macesnovino zamenjal z lahkim lesom kalifornijske sekvoje. Presek palic sem zmanjšal na 1,8\1,8 cm, masivno sedežno površino sem zamenjal z mrežo. Ta drugi stol Lajt tehta le 985 gramov. Če bi bili vijaki, ki drže opore iz aluminija, bi pridobil še kakšen gram.
Stol z MaticemStol je mogoče držati na konici iztegnjenega prsta, zdrži pa težo odraslega človeka in še kakega otroka povrhu. Prva zaznava in preizkus pripada idealom, druga pa zemeljski preverljivosti, ali še drugače > stati na tleh in se ravnati po oblakih.

 

I was often told that my products are too massive and heavy. I have thus set out to make a really light chair.
For the first try, I have used larch wood sticks of square intersection 2 by 2 cm. The construction was strengthened with aluminium supports. The larch Lajt weighs 2030 grams.
For my next Lajt, I substituted larch wood with the lighter redwood. The intersection of the sticks was diminished to 1.8 by 1.8 cm, and the solid seat plate replaced with bamboo network. The second Lajt weighs only 985 grams and would have been lighter still had I used aluminium screws to fasten the supports.
The chair can be held on the tip of a finger, but it can withstand the weight of an adult, plus perhaps a child, quite easily. The first test nears the ideal, while the second is more earthly; one could say, to stand on the ground and reach for the clouds is the merit of the Lajt couple – or nearly so.
