PROTOTYPE 1st CHAIR for NAP

PROTOTYPE 2nd SOMEWHERE

COMPONENT TECHINICAL DRAWINGS


SOMEWHERE NOT ONLY FOR SETING , BUT ALSO FOR MAKING YOUR OWN WORLD

INTRODUCTION


ARE YOU GOING SOMEWHERE? MAKE THE WORLD YOUR SIT. Somewhere is the result of a mixture of contrasts: soft with hard materials and a chair which is no longer a chair, but just the soul of it. The project allows you to move wherever you feel comfortable and by spiking the back you can create your own chair. Trapped between a victorian mahogany frame and metal sharp legs, a sheet of smooth latex has been cutted to host the person. The fluid line of the original back has been kept with the new designed legs.
