Pillow Stool Chair by Hong Ying Guo

Home > Winners > #31870


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Pillow Stool

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
The design was inspired by the whole atmosphere of living in Copenhagen. Everything there is so simple and engaging but the story and the motivation behind them are thoughtful. With integration of traditional values and innovative technology, Scandinavia design makes people’s life more meaningful and easier. The simplicity was the core value on my design. Through the simple steel rod materials, the relationship between light and shadow in the space was explored in a playful way.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It is simple but embraces many characteristics. The steel rods on the first layer and the second layer of the sitting part go to different directions, so they cross each other to create a magic visualization. The curve counter of the side structure provides round edges and surfaces for users to comfortably sit on it. Between the first layer and the second layer of the sitting part, the rods constitute an empty space to store magazines or newspapers. The stool not only gives users an inviting gesture but also offers useful functions to them.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
