Concept

An aesthetic which crosses the line; rational, logical interpretation is replaced by instinctive perception. A process of conceptual reinvention, a curved wooden frame which would be impossible to produce if not through injection moulding. The seat heralds a new form, nature is altered, with a moulded plastic product displaying all the visual and tactile characteristics of wood. An extreme investigation into some of the intrinsic opportunities of industrial design to produce a new, stylish, lightweight form.
