DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Ribbon Barstool

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Barstool

INSPIRATION:
The Zig Zag Chair by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Mimicking the soft flow and folding of a ribbon, this modern barstool is a perfect blend of form and function. The uniquely curvy silhouette commands attention while also offering an ergonomic structure.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Ribbon Barstool attributes its stability to the even weight distribution between its two front steel legs and the molded wood or plastic base. The legs are affixed to a steel plate which is embedded into the S-shaped, structure. Rubber grips are used on the bottom of the steel tubing and wood/plastic structure to aid in slide resistance. The unique curves of the barstool are supported with translucent rubber discs that are wedged in the small space between the curve of the back of the seat and the wood base. This distributes the weight into the legs and base without compromising the integrity of its form.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The inception of the concept and design began in Florence, Italy while in design school in 2009. Since then the materials and structure have been refined for production purposes.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Ribbon Barstool is available in plastic, molded wood and upholstered natural wool.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
400W x 507D x 955H mm

TAGS:
barstool, bar stool, seating, chair, stool

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The greatest challenge was creating an ergonomic form without compromising the stool's elegant profile.
