    About

    A plastic and sculptural interpretation of the individual. That structural and systematic being with a visceral and instinctive essence.
    Published:
PERSONAL SEAT
A personal and intimate seat inspired on human's nature, reflecting our structural and systematic way of living and showting how visceral and instinctive we are.

The segmented volume shape is given by a basic elliptical constructed module which evolves and moves upwards and downwards to create the seat area.

The whole structure is supported by itself, thanks to a forces sequence along the piece. Despite this, four screws were used for safety issues.

Its aesthetics allows the user to see through it without loosing its visual weight in the environment.
