Furniture designed to repair

MEA is a concept idea that stands for reparability. The MEA-Chair is an example that corresponds to this idea. MEA-Chair is made entirely of solid wood and is therefore easy to repair. Due to detachable screw connections, it can be quickly disassembled and completely refurbished within less than 60 minutes. Irreparable individual parts can be replaced while all others stay in use. MEA makes repairability accessible to a wider audience and therefore allows furniture to remain in an endless cycle, hardly using any new resources. After the first repair, MEA's life has just begun!
