Place Chair by Gae Avitabile

Home > Winners > #30184


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Place

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
During a plane trip between Paris and Rome I looked at an object and trying to understand how it was built I was reminded of when as a child I tried to open all objects to see inside.From an early age we are used to looking at things. To pick them up, groped to understand how they work. Trying to take them apart and guessing its hidden structure.The Place idea was born.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Place is a formal research to express a reassuring feeling of security combined with a joyous lightness. The aim was to obtain an airy and dreamy object, comfortable and fun.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Place is fantasy, a free game, outgoing traveller, everything 'allows you to generate surprise. It's a design with the impact of the dreams whit the conviction that we need more beauty and poetry.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project has been developed in Paris and Caserta between 2011-2012

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Stretch textile over metal framework with minimal PU foam and colored laminate wood

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Overall dimension:580 mm (W), 540mm (P), 800 mm (H)

TAGS:
chair, furniture, armchair, seat, luxury furniture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The formal research has been devoted to combine harmoniously soft signs and warm materials. The major role of graphic design is to communicate something to people, and product design is to be used by people.This chair was designed to serial production.

CHALLENGE:
The general aspects and characteristics can be describe in three distinctive process phases and parts of the whole design concept: 1) metal framework 2) upholstery 3) laminated wood. The first challenge was to reduce weight without sacrificing structural strenght, but the hard part was to guarantee that all the distinct manifactures could work toward the same tollerances. The intent of "place" is not a formal language, but an easy the reading of values such as transparency, elegance and simplicity.
