Para Public Outdoor Garden Chair by Mian Wei

Home > Winners > #103314


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Para

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Public Outdoor Garden Chair

INSPIRATION:
The designer wanted to create a set of chairs with a unique visual symmetry that totally deviates from the inherent traditional form of conventional chair design by shifting the center of focus, and bring fun interaction and freedom into mundane public outdoor seating. Inspired by simple seesaw shape, and the structure of a roly-poly, this set of outdoor chairs is bold, modern and welcomes interaction. The detail form and curvature were inspired by pollen and flying seeds

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Para is a set of public outdoor chairs with extremely low center of gravity. Most public outdoor furniture is either fixed or heavily weighted and doesn't have any adjustability. With its unique weight distribution, Para is designed to provide restrained mobility in flexible outdoor settings. The heavier bottom makes it easier to rotate and flip to user preferable positions.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Both with a heavy weighted bottom, Para A supports 360 rotation around its base, and Para B supports bidirectional flipping. Para brings bold playfulness to public settings. With Para A, the rotation makes flexible communal organization and communication effortless with heavy public furniture. With Para B, a line of public chairs can be rearranged to either direction easily. With PARA outdoor chairs you can choose and change your sitting direction freely, and get a new view of the park everyday.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Spring 2020 release, USA, project period Jan - Feb 2020

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Bent polycarbonate sheets supported by steel and polyethylene legs. Filled with heavy fillings to increase weight.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
620 mm x 1200 mm x 820 mm

TAGS:
Chair, Outdoor, Public, Furniture, Park, Garden, Transparent

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Research went into finding the optimal shape and balance for ergonomics and its unique symmetrical structure.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to create a set of outdoor park chairs that is modern and bold, and would have a degree of controlled flexibility for adjustable sitting and viewing direction.
