Parachute Wall Shelf by Yusuke Watanabe

Home > Winners > #119466


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Parachute

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wall Shelf

INSPIRATION:
When listening to Coldplay's first album, it suddenly occurred to me to look up the word "Parachute." It seems that the name "parachute"; comes combining the Italian "parare" (to protect) with the French "chute" (to fall). I thought that was a rather fine name. I tried to think of devices that protect against falling. When in use, the plank for the section being used falls, and hangs there. Your coat, your magazine... this protects them from falling.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
When in use, the plank for the section being used falls, and hangs there. Your coat, your magazine... this protects them from falling.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
When in use, the plank for the section being used falls, and hangs there.

The project started in April 2017 in Tokyo and finished in October 2018 in Tokyo, and Yusuke Watanabe was exhibited in Salone del Mobile in April 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
