Exocet (Multifunctional Chair) by Stéphane Leathead
2014 - 2015, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
It started with a simple questioning. Can we create a long chair offering more than 3 back positions? And can it rock as well? And can it be made of very few pieces? Could a chair be designed using smooth curves instead hard straight lines? And most importantly, can it be simple yet innovative & elegant? I started designing with one obsession using only one basic shape allowing a very efficient fabrication process.
Creativity
EXOCET is a new concept chair. Its unique & clever design allows to transform it in order to get the desired shape. The EXOCET is crafted from a single main piece, a slat. A series of identical slats assembly is simply rotated on a cylinder.
Design Challenges
Finding solution to limit friction as much as possible. To select the proper material to produce the cylinder and handles to avoid deterioration.
Production Technology
Baltic Birch & Aluminium
