DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
La Chaise Impossible

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Seeking to design a beautiful chair yet so simple to make, small and light in order to make a gift for a very close friend that helped me paid for an expensive surgery ... We had always shared a passion for exquisite chair design so this was a very challenging task.... Make it simple, practical, beautiful, strong, lasting, comfortable.... And, so it was a eureka moment when the two pieces of wood together could stand in perfect equilibrium.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It stands in only two legs, it is lightweight from 5 to 10 kgrs, simple to build, beautiful to the eye, strong, robust, everlasting, stainless, no screws, no nails, modular uses for several positions, is a piece of art, it rocks back and forth, its fun, totally recyclable, is made of solid wood and aluminum tubing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The chair is so light that can be easily moved and lifted even by children. It also drops down to the floor offering a different seating position at floor level. When sitting down the solid sturdy feeling amazes you even tough it has only a pair of legs that is why I named it "The Impossible Chair" Its presence on any ambiance makes the chair a must have for all people that have contact with it. Outdoors or indoors its elegance and trendy looks makes the chair a classic already.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As an admirer of great designers. Always driven towards designing a great chair that will make part of industrial design history. After many years of designing products, in very different areas finally I got the space and time to build my own designed chairs. To make an innovative piece of art furniture, seeking the simplest solution to a very comfortable yet beautiful chair. Mastering the physics of equilibrium and center of gravity. Using wood and aluminum tubing it was possible.

CHALLENGE:
Challenging the laws of Physics to stand a great looking chair in only two legs. Innovation, less material and more functions. Easy to produce. Comfort, function and beauty all blend in a great piece of art. And, sculpture to sit. Challenges your imagination and stimulates your brain! Questions as How? and, many Wows!!! are the first impressions.
