Beast by Neri Oxman



Beast Lounge Chair Study

Beast is an organic-like entity created synthetically by the incorporation of physical parameters with digital form-generation protocols. A single continuous surface, acting both as structure and as skin, is locally modulated for both structural support and corporeal aid. Beast combines structural, environmental, and corporeal performance by adapting its thickness, pattern density, stiffness, flexibility, and translucency to load, curvature, and skin-pressured areas respectively.

And if you put it upside down we are at our usual quest again: Chairchez La Femme (look for the lady).

When you’re sitting on cloud nine you are supposed to be in Heaven. Maybe you feel the same if you are sitting on Richard Frinier‘s Cloud Nine Lounge Chair while sipping a nice cocktail.

The Ultimate Nest Chair: Giant “Bird’s” Nest for Breeding Ideas by O*GE

This human-sized and giant by bird standards nest by O*GE is a prototype of a new kind of a socializing space, a “morph of furniture and playground.” The soft and spacious product was created so that the users could get in for an informal meeting, play, think, get inspired, get creative and come up with new ideas.

With 3 sizes being available to be made on demand, the biggest version is 4.50 m in diameter and can host up to 16 people at once! Who’s in?

O*GE Creative Group was founded by an award winning architect duo Gaston Zahr and Merav Eitan who currently live in Haifa, Israel. They founded O*GE Interactive Gallery, a cross-over experience on art / architecture / design / ecological issues & social responsibility with its connected practice, O*GE Architects, in 2007.
