UK-based designer Charlie Davidson ‘s The Object of Desire, Sweet Jane is inspired by the form of a corset.
Davidson began the project a few years back, developing initial concept drawings to produce the first scale mock-ups and a number of 3D computer visualization.
Upon a visit to Vollers corset company – into producing corsets since the 19th century – the shape and form of the lounge really began to develop.
The Bungeeseat revisits René Herbst’s Chaise Sandows, but adds a contemporary twist by using today’s aesthetics and conscience in material selection. The frame is constructed from bamboo plywood and locally manufactured bungee cords. The Bungeeseat kit fabricated in Fishbol’s Toronto studio, comes in customizable accent colors and bungee cords. The ready-to-assemble (RTA) chair is sold in a neatly designed package. The Bungeeseat is in limited production by Fishbol available at www.fishbol.com.
