Baumtec Walls, Wetbox, Sunloungers and Materials
Andres and John from Baumtec came a few days before the event to help with the building and logistics of their products. They had been in contact with ILM extensively, and were especially active in the days leading up to the event, helping to ensure that everything was flowing smoothly. They sent over images of all the prototypes and measurements ahead of time, and were at ILM all day helping to build the wall and figure out the logistics of transportation.
The wall that was featured in the booth is the result of ILM and Baumtec’s collaboration. The wall can be taken apart, and therefore it can be built and transported multiple times in various locations. Sheets of heavy metal that make up the base ensures that the frame remains strictly upright. The result is a frame strong enough to not only support the metal poles and structures, but also the planks that slide perfectly into place in their individual slots, creating a gorgeous wooden wall.
Although this process is one that requires a good amount of work and elbow grease, it is certainly worthwhile. Baumtec’s design and use of SWC is very deliberate, and results in products that are functional, beautiful, and sustainable. Another example of this is their sun-lounger and wet box , two carefully designed products with elegant structure and thought given to transport and portability.
