Shady Seating

This clever seating series by Duffy London is sure to get plenty of head turns as it plays with the viewer’s perception! Each chair, has a permanent, unwavering shadow that acts not only as a visual peculiarity, but an integral part of the cantilevered support structure. Chairs appear to balance on two legs and, complimented by various shadow characters, it’s almost believable!

Flying Carpet

via bonluxat

This cantilevered sculptural easy chair is unique.

Its swinging form stimulates playfully changing sitting positions between upright and relaxed. Flying Carpet impresses as a single piece, but can also be grouped to an ensemble. The cover is removable, the basic construction is delicate but robust.   (Desanta)

Helios is a modern chair designed by Spigoli Vivi. Besides being the chair it also can be used as a bedside table. That’s possible because the chair’s seat is flat and there is a light in the chair’s back. The chair is made entirely of wood and features a very simple and modern design. If you enjoy furniture that serves several purposes at once or live in a small living space where space is at a premium then Helios might be a an interesting choice for you. Chair, nightstand, and bedside lamp in the one furniture piece. Who could have thought?   (Mike, 2011)

a CHAIR

a CHAIR
a CHAIRThis chair is a compromise between an object of everyday use and art installation. The chair that is comfortable to sit on, can be exposed as a sculpture in an inspiring space.
The legs, arms, and torso all resemble certain characteristics that cross between each other. On the other hand, you can completely change that mentality by adding a few lines that can blur the difference between the two. 
The combination of colours and materials  makes it a product in the concept store and a piece in the art gallery. The name, aCHAIR, comes from its spiral shape, which looks like a small letter “a”. It symbolises an author’s wish to mark his first steps in a new, creative adventure of design.
Ivo, designed a multiform chair that, at the same time, is noted for its simplicity of design.
aChair is the name of the object that led Otasevic towards the lights of worldwide recognition in the last Design Fair of Milan.  (ADMIN, 2010)
