The reductive design relies on only three parts

The Heureka chair by Timo Spellekan is an example of elegant simplicity. The designer, who is based in Aachen, Germany, created the chair as a thesis project at the Aachen University of Applied Sciences. The design was meant to be lightweight and easy to assemble and store.

Heureka consists of three components: two matching wire legs, a seat and a backrest. The secret to the chair’s assembly is how the wire legs fit into wooden clips on the reverse side of the seat and backrest.

Spellekan received an award for Heureka from ein&zwanzig, a competition supported by the German Design Council. Heureka was exhibited at the 2017 Milan Furniture fair.
