I wanted to create a product "that go beyond" merely practical and aesthetic goals. The research process was focused on the symbols in our life. life as it is lived in reality, involving unwelcome as well as welcome experiences, as distinct from a fictional world. My goal is to combine the real life and fictional world.
The biggest challenge has been the technical and formal assembly development. The positioning and shaping of 5 pipes , first. And secondly, the base interlocking into the seat.
