Homage to wood
Loop is a wooden chair with a traditional, archetypal character combined with tricky, progressive details. The entire sculpture was built from the same trapezoid form gesture with super smooth ellipsoid curvatures. Annabella, the designer played mostly with the edges and profiles - sometimes she mirrored the sections within an element - thus the final parts look thinner and more dynamic - the “sharp to smooth, smooth to sharp” edges lead our eyes.
The replaceable seating element and the vertical backrest segment can be upholstered separately to increase comfort. For the same reason, we would like to use a flexible fastener/spacer under the seating element.
The technical joints are hidden and the traditional ones are visible.
It was important for Annabella to focus on the shell and keep the leg variability flexible - it makes the chair more adaptive and economically customizable.
The chair was visualized with ash wood and optional leather covering, but it is possible with oak, beech, and other kinds of fabrics.
Originally, it was designed for the Andreu World design contest 2022. The design concept was built on the analysis of the company's product portfolio.
This project is currently free to edition, we would like to find a partner who can take it to their product portfolio and could develop the product with us.
