My idea was to design a multifunctional lounge chair which can be place in different styles of interior, just using different materials and colors of its. Primary aim was also to achieve design with clear lines and simple look.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Lounge Chair follows the ergonomic principles of comfortable seating and pure geometric lines that abstractly form the letters Y and O. It creates a contrast between a massive, wooden construction and a light, transparent composite cloth of the seat and back. The tension of the cloth is achieved by the interweaving of fibres (corset look). The lounge chair is complemented by a stool that becomes a side table when its rotated. A range of color choices allows them both to easily fit into interiors of various styles.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:

It was exhibited in the Month of Design 2012 from October till November 2012 in Ljubljana, and it was nominated for the award of the Design of the Year 2012. Yo was also presented in Top Ideas, selection of top creative interior design ideas at the Ambient Ljubljana Furniture Fair.
