DE LAURA BY LAURA BRUSSAARD

“The young design student Laura Brussaard is only 17 years old when she suddenly dies from the effects of a massive pulmonary embolism. Caused by a combination of a genetic disorder and contraceptive pills. In the first three months of her studies she draws a sketch of a chair, where vulnerable groups can feel safe in. This sketch was designed by Ahrend in collaboration with Stichting Project Laura: De LAURA® armchair. With the LAURA® chair, the Project Laura Foundation and Ahrend are carrying on her vision.”
