The Sputnik Chair Chair by Harold Sangouard aka HAROW

Home > Winners > #51211


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Sputnik Chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Besides the political aspect and the race to space, the only function of the Sputnik satellite was to send bips to the earth. The Sputnik chair was created with the same leitmotiv and all the superfluous were set aside. Its 4 asymmetric feet were directly inspired from the satellite antenna and ensure a flawless contact with the ground.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Sputnik chair is directly inspired from the satellite of the same name. Simple, effective and timeless were the main criterias for this piece. The Sputnik chair is voluntarily rude in its aspect and goes straight to the point. The simplicity of the used materials shows the humility of the Artist HAROW. Made out of hand-cast aluminum and steel, the chair demonstrate how basic materials can be used with elegance.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Sputnik Chair is made in a brut steel. This basic material, in addition of the design of the chair, can fit with lots of different kinds of interiors: industrial, elegant, contemporary, refined, artistic, ... Furthermore, the steel is a very strong material which insures the solidity of the chair and makes it sustainable over time.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2015 with the first drawing of the Chair and finished in August 2016. 9 months were needed to create the 4 asymmetric feet strong enough and as thin as possible. It was difficult to make the satellite antennas strong enough to ensure a flawless contact with the ground. When the solution was finally found, the Sputnik Chair was presented in Paris in September 2016 for the Paris Design Week.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
With a diameter of 58 cm the Sputnik chair uses the exact same dimensions as the satellite for the aluminum seating. The asymmetric incurved feet are made out of steel to ensure a flawless solidity.
