Capsule pills have always been an inspirational object, whose bright colours not only draw an immediate emotional response, but also play an important role in functionality.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
C 39 is the transformative state of a pill that implies a seating form.
As the exterior body is partially cut, the interior particles are exposed - these particles are made of post-consumer recycled fibre and soft enough to function as cushions.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As a person sits or lies down inside C 39, one can experience partial encapsulation of the body, and physically interact with the interior particles.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2015 in Banff, AB, Canada and finished in February 2017 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Semi-transparent polycarbonate and anodized aluminum are used for the capsule body. The interior particles are made of post-consumer recycled fibre.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
W 2400mm x D 850mm x H 900mm

The C 39 project is the morphological study of a pill as a furniture form. The project shows how the aesthetic value of a pill is translated into a functional seating.
The biggest challenge came from how to create an ideal seating form while maintaining its visual integrity as a pill. I attempted to keep its interior particles as original as I could.
