Anti Stress chair by Bashko Trybek
Bashko Trybek is a Polish designer (in production by Paris-based Pally by Laura Väinölä that we featured earlier, let you create countless patterns for the seat (and back!). It is also probably more comfortable than the Tennis Balls Chair by Remy and Veenhuizen Guido posted about a while back.) is composed of hundreds of re-arrangeable stress balls which, much like
Produced in a large (240 ball) ‘low chair’ and a small (128 ball) model, the chair itself consists of a steel wire grid powder-coated in a range of colours. users place stress balls in each of the spaces of the wire frame, arranging them as desired into stripes, motifs, or patterns. The colours of stress balls were selected as magenta, cyan, yellow, black, and white to match the printing raster, turning the entire piece into a playful and interactive interpretation of printing pixels.
During this yearâ€™s Design Miami/Basel, Nucleo presented their latest collection called Presenze, with these “caramelized” chairs being part of it. The 5×5 cubes are casted in epoxy resin and are assembled by hand.
From the designers:
“The Presenze collection is a testimony of past lives, the evolution of obsolete objects. The glories of the nineteenth-century baroque structures has been re-designed into minimalistic shapes, given a strong characteristic from its material, resin.
A game of presence and absence, of lightness and weight, challenging the law of gravity. The balance is made even more precarious by the milkiness of the resin, permeable to light. Itâ€™s a fascination for the transition, from liquid to solid, from past to presence.”
