The Once Collection Seating by Kristof De Bock

Home > Winners > #116743


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Once Collection

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seating

INSPIRATION:
Design should be functional. It is limited by laws of nature. The challenge was to create an unique (bar)stool by exploring materials and production methods. A chair needs to be strong, stable, light and comfortable. A good design combines all this with a unique look.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
At Dasein Products, they are always looking for an unique approach without compromising in functionality or comfort. In this case a chair and a barstool. These seats are made of a laser-cut metal construction and with cowhide upholstered foam cushions. The metals form a strong single legged chair but split again to become supports for the cushions. The seating cushion is directly fixed on the metal. The backrests are connected by a hinge so that they can adapt to the seated person.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is some comfortable sitting. The bicycle seat changes the position of the legs which relieves the spine and back muscles. And the back itself is extra supported by the hinged supports.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
A similar design was made by the designer as a student when he was assigned to create an ode to Japanese product designer Tohiyuki Kita. It refers to his Wink chair and his Kick table. The designer picked the idea up again and early 2020 and reshaped the homage according his current ideas.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The chairs are made of 2 forms of laser-cut metal that are welded together. There is the Corten steel version and the black version that needs painting after the welding. The cushions are made of foam on wooden base. They are covered with cowhide that was first sewn to size.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Barstool : Width 50 cm x Depth 40 cm x Height 110 cm Stool: Width 50 cm x Depth 40 cm x Height 80 cm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A stool has to be stable. Hence the 3 contact points with the floor. It is important that the ones at the rear are far enough to the back to prevent flipping. Secondly it needs to be strong and not heavy. By using plate metal that was cut and welded in a well thought out manner, Dasein Products was able to reduce the number of legs. You will also see that there are no weak corners but that direction change is made through rounded angles. For comfort, there are no hard and inflexible contact with the seated.

CHALLENGE:
It is not that easy to generate an elegant yet comfortable chair that looks different from the rest. It’s production needs good machinery but mostly specialized craftsmanship.
