Inspiration & Design concept Gaudi’s love of Nature In praise of nature, this chair pays homage to the legendary Spanish architect, Antonio Gaudi, whose his marvelous designs derived from the study of nature’s organic engineering. With the same design ethos, Gaudi chair conceptualized the relationship between the inner structural membrane of a tree’s leaf and its outer organic edge line. The binary relation of those two substances always relies on each other to sustain the growth of the leaves and the entire tree. Metaphorically, without the tension relationship of the inner structural string lines and the outer metal frame, the chair would not be able to reinforce itself, especially when body weight is put on. Production & technology Guadi Chair celebrates the relationship of those two components; polyurethane elastic strings and a metal chair frame. By interweaving the inner structure with elastic strings from two different ends, the chair’s metal frame is reinforced with tension. When the body weight is put on the seat, enhancing the tension force, the chair becomes more stable.
Design Inspiration The Guadi chair was named after the study of the world’s renowned architect of Spain, Antonio Gaudi on his self-taught engineering study of La Sagrada Famiglia. The chair reflects the idea of Antonio Guadi on how he perceived through the systematic structure of nature’s organism.
Babushka in russian means grandma. The chair was inspired and adapted by russian Babushka nestling doll although adapted to be practical for seating use. Babushka comes in different materials, mosiacs, upholstery and water-hyacinth finishings and can be used for both interiors and exteriors.
Inspiration & Technology The dynamic curvilinear designs of Thailand’s traditional artifacts and architecture are the features of Nirvana d’Oro. This functional art item reflects an impression of ornate gold gilded architecture and Buddha images transformed into the figure of an armchair. It can be used in all types of environments that require a contradiction of material use and stunning impact.
Inspiration & Design concept Courtesy of the Hungarian-French artist, Victor Vasarely, the father of Op-art, comes the gentle curves of the “Vasarely” chair. The inspiration was taken from his distinctive works, which were housed in the Foundation Vasarely Museum in Aix-en-Provence, France. From the illusive effect of the gigantic paintings that allure the viewer’s vision, the design concept was further developed into a functional contoured seat.
