Boomerang is one of the designs in Fly Collection, designed by Feza Koca,2015. Every piece in the collection has its own inspiration. Boomerang is a flying toy, acrylic seating helps boomerang shaped hands to seem flying as a chair too. Main concept of the collection is freedom. Flying is freedom. Boomerang is pure,simple and different.
Boomerang is a chair, it should be durable to carry the user. But at the same time relation between acrylic and wood would be pure and simple. They didn't want any third fixing material like screw. That was the hardest part. The massive wooden parts were really strong to groove. By that way acrylic fixed in those deep grooves with a special strong glue and left to dry by strong fixers.
