DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Banchila

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Stool

INSPIRATION:
The motive to come up with this project has started by creating comfort to the spectators of the famous outdoor summer festivals in Portugal. Thousands of people with no places to seat, difficulties to get their food and drinks and security of personal belongings can be solved with this simple design. Fishing is an activity of high relevance in Portugal and the main festivals are taking place by the coast. Therefore the inspiration of the Design form is the typical handcraft marking fishing buoy.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This object is a transportable stool with compartments inside to carry goods. It is light, resistant, ergonomic and can be hold either as a bag or a backpack.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The stool can be transported either as a backpack or a bag through a single rope that crosses the axis of the object. The extremities of the rope are finished with adjustable knots to fit the shoulders or the hands of the holder. When opening the lid that is closed with the rope itself, it has several compartments to store personal things like wallet, cell phones and keys or food, drinks and others. In sensory terms, it is a soft product to the touch, with a pleasant odours and a natural temperature very close to the one of the human body, reason why it conveys a unique sensation of comfort.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2017 in Portugal West Coast and finished in August 2017 in Lisbon.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This Design is made out of Cork, an ecological material that Portugal happens to be the main exporter worldwide. It is extracted from the bark of the Oak trees without ever harming the normal development of the species. One hundred per cent natural is harvested at one hundred per cent until it is transformed to enter the productive process by grinding. The compacting result of this granulate, denominated Composite Agglomerate is today used in several products by casting it to have different kind of shapes.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Inspired by the anatomical proportions of the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci and Le Corbusier's Modulor, the dimensions of the object measure 35cm maximum height and 25cm maximum diameter with concave and convex surfaces to fit the anatomy of the human when transporting it or when sitting on it.

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
One day after a company has order me to design a portable stool for outdoor festivals, I have found an old fishermen foam buoy during a low tide walk in a desert beach. It was the only object around to seat on and it was confortable by it size and it material too. In order to clean the beach and think about the possibility of designing something out of it I took it with me and due it volume, soon the idea of carving it inside to have some compartments took place.

CHALLENGE:
The creative challenge was to find the inside compartments form to make sense with the design concept and function. The result was the propeller shape inspiration because it can separate the inside spaces and at the same time is the structure of the bench. In terms of social perspectives it is about an ecological and multifunctional object, which simplify and bring comfort to people. It production is very feasible in Portugal because this is an abundant local material and the factories are looking forward to create new designs out of it.
