Wire Rocking Chair by Hong Zhu

Home > Winners > #26864


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Wire

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Rocking Chair

INSPIRATION:
To make people more aware of their living environment, the WIRE's design is inspired by the people's "way of thinking." Usually, from the moment people see an object with their eyes and send the information to their brains, a little gap called optical illusion, is created. The Wire utilizes this illusion between looking and thinking to create a furniture piece that has both 2d and 3d features. When people look at the chair from different directions, it always looks different, as if moving a 2d wire in a 3 dimensional living space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Using the CNC rolling technique, WIRE is formed by two pieces of aluminum tubes. Even though it’s a functional chair, it looks like wires hanging in a flat surface. The seating space is hidden in the pipes. The chair has a unique structure with very good self-balance. It is a durable, stable and sustainable piece with low material cost and luxury appearance. WIRE is easily manufactured. Also, the light weight and rust resistant materials make it good for outdoor and indoor using.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is a light-weight, and low-cost furniture. The unique structure won’t block your eyes from looking at every corner of your room. It is also a durable, long-lasting piece. It can be easily brought outdoors and you don't have to worry about it rusting, breaking, or getting dirty. It shows a variety of shapes depending on the location of the viewer. This concise, modern and luxurious-looking chair is a great option for your living room.
