Bubble Chair by Grigorii Gorkovenko

Home > Winners > #121904


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bubble

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Use of natural materials and manual labour is done out of respect to traditional approach, where the master shares warmth of his hands and part of his inner-self. BUBBLE for its creators is almost a living creature, a metal monster with a gentle soul. When you sit in it, you can almost sense its friendliness, support and security.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bubble chair - is not what it seems. From lightly inflated visual forms you can expect airy lightness: but the frame itself is cast by hand from a very robust aluminium. In front of us we have an interesting example of a conflict between form and content, which completely changes features and perception of the object itself. Choice of using aluminium was determined by its plasticity: in designers opinion, this is the most «alive» material out there.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is an interior oxymoron, a toy for people who appreciate a paradox. Soft on the outside, hard on the touch, strange in its form, with unusual texture. It also posseses an appropriate temper: in the shadow BUBBLE projects a cosmic chill, in the sun it becomes a real «hot thing» (what else can you expect from aluminium). This chair can be an art piece in the hallway of a collector, or it can attract visitors attention in the lobby of a public space. But what can be said about BUBBLE for sure - is that nobody can call it boring.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
8 months Khabarovsk city, Russian Federation

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
During the process of manufacturing the BUBBLE chair, only handcrafted labour was used as well as injection moulding technique. Material used is aluminium which has been purposely satined so it has a noble matte gloss. It took 8 months and 80kg of metall for a casting professional to manufacture the piece. Metal was given freedom, which in its turn has given it a unique texture, so the energy of the of the object can literally be felt by your skin.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 8800 mm x Depth 8500mm x Height 10500mm

TAGS:
chair, art object, collectible design, russian design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the past few years the designer of BUBBLE has been gravitating towards rounded inflated shapes. Since his early childhood he has been dreaming about sitting on top of a hot air balloon - and today he has a great opportunity to make his dream come true. But on a different level and with a different philosophy.

CHALLENGE:
Designer calls his style «serious fun». This style can be found in all of his latest objects. Hard and soft. Hot and cold. Tender and brutal. At the junction of the opposites is where you find everything that is of most interest.
