Bio Chair by Vladimir Zagorac

Home > Winners > #140098


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bio

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Bio is a conceptual research project in the subject of stylistics created as a part of doctoral studies. The proposal of the chair collection was inspired by organic shapes and universal principals of nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The ambiguous shape of the opening on the seat's back, recognizable as a leaf or shell transforms into a more characteristic form similar to the flower of the Calla aethiopica plant on the edge of the backrest. This edge bends slightly backwards and rises on one side, creating a new visual effect as opposed to the other side. The asymmetry of the silhouette does not affect the functionality and ergonomics of the seat since changes in the shape occur only in the outer areas of the form.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Bio is a low armchair collection designed for various usages. It complements modern interiors with simplistic asymmetry and unobtrusive form open to interpretation.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project lasted one semester at the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Molded thermoplastics, Welded laser-cut and pressed steel, Cast aluminum, Oakwood, Leather

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

TAGS:
Asymmetry, Natural, Bio-form, Growth, Stylization

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research was performed by analyzing samples from flora and fauna and simplification and stylizing through drawings and 3D computer models. The result contains no unnecessary visual details, and was driven by the challenge of creating asymmetrical functional aesthetics within an ergonomic fresh design, universally understood as a bio-form. Different variants were developed depending on the purpose of the chair and type of legs, with metal and wood as starting materials. The organic lines of the seats are additionally emphasized in contrast with the materials of the legs.

CHALLENGE:
The shape of the seat can be associated with a multitude of natural forms but also with the general characteristics of the living world. The silhouette of the seat is defined through two edge curves similar in shape but with subtle differences such as curvature, orientation, distortion, and depth. These gradual changes emphasize growth as a universally understandable natural pattern and accentuate the form through minimal spatial deformations associated with gravity and weight. A firm overall construct was kept whilst utilizing asymmetry as one of the main chosen attributes.
