COORDINATION’S THREAD FAMILY: A Rapidly Multiplying Clan by Flip Sellin

Scroll To View



Headed by Tilman Thürmer, Flip Sellin and Jochen Gringmuth, COORDINATION is a design and architecture studio with offices in Shanghai and Berlin . The trio also run an in house product and furniture design studio which is where I spotted the fantastic “Thread Family”. Designed by Flip Sellin, the collection was kicked off last year with a series of adjustable stools and tables which have since been followed by three new members in 2013. The collection is based on the concept of a threaded lathed wooden rod, which when combined with its accompanying parts in stainless steel and polymer, allows for not just a fun look but also for some very practical height customization. Bravo Flip!
