Interview with Claudio Sibille at Tuesday 15th of April 2014

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
CS: The idea, like most of my work is to show that thre is more than meets the eye in what looks like a simple object. Whjat inspired me to do this. . . ell in great measure, my wife´s pregnancy.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
CS: This project is the result of my work in M3 where multifunctionality and space saving furniture is the main objective.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
CS: Well, now that it has a distinctive quality seal like the "A´design" it´s time to take this to the prototype level, and ending with the commercial one.

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
CS: Quite a while. I jhesitated a lot while designing this project. I was never totally satisfied with the relationships of height between the coffee table and the chairs. Reaching that exact balance where you can say "Uffff, I´M FINALLY DONE" took me days, weeks. Not always working on this project of course, but week anyway.

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
CS: I did not precisely need to solve this particular problem (the one solved by this design), but I needed to find new ways of solving space issues through furniture design in the most original and practicable way possible.

FS: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
CS: It will be manufactured by M3 soon.

FS: Who is the target customer for his design?
CS: mostly young people between the ages of 18 and 50 living in small apartments that can easily manipulate light medium sized objects in their daily basis routine.

FS: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
CS: I think the one thing that sets this design apart is its utility.

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
CS: The name comes from the fact that the two chairs are identical and come from the same womb.

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
CS: Pencil, paper, autocad, 3d studio and lots of coffee.

FS: How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
CS: My good results doing this in previous years.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
