DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Curt deck chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lean on chair

INSPIRATION:
The curt deck chair came from an internal competition to design a unique deck chair to sit behind our office building. Oar goal was it reduce the chair as much as possible. In the end we came up with the idea to even cut away two legs of the chair and lean it on the wall.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This deck chair is attractive in its simplicity. In combination with the environment it serve its purpose as a deck chair. To achive best stability, it needs to be leaned against walls or rails in a flat angle. The anti-slip coated stand provides safe grip on every surface. Even though it looks dangerous it provides comfort seating and relaxing in every occasion. The frame-part is manufactured in the sheltered workshop altra, made of local woods, such as ash and beech.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Project is in process since it is been first shown in 2011.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Production in Switzerland. Started in 2011. Was shown in Salone Satellite in 2013 and will enter the market in 2014.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The deck chair is made from an outdoor caravan fabric and a wooden frame part. The frame-part is manufactured in the sheltered workshop altra, made of local woods, such as ash and beech. The bottom end of the frame is covered by a anti-slip coated rubber paint that protects the chair to slip down.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1600 x 800 x 50 mm

TAGS:
deck chair, lean on chair, unique design chair

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The chair is a game of physics. First there is the anti-slip coated feets. But actually the point of this chair is the center of gravity. It is located very low under the sticks. So the weight of the person actually makes it more stable then without.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was it the actually make people believe that this chair works. We took a picture of "danger" and make it look like two match sticks. This attracts the chair in its view and encourage the users.
