What is a chair? What is a garden chair?
At the studio we had an interesting sketch of a gardenchair. The starting idea was to use rotational moulding process. It was compeling but not innovative.
So instead of designing the seat to push out the rainwater as usual we considered doing the opposite. Making the water go inside the chair.
But we still needed a good reason to put water inside the furniture.
The next observation was crucial. In the context of a garden water is a very important element.
So we decided to use the seat as a funil to store rainwater and then shower the garden.
We did a lot of drawings and experiments before understanding how the final product should look like. It has been for sure one of the most challenging and exciting projects we did so far at the studio.
