Drum (Pouf) by Serge Atallah
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The idea was to promotes fun and happiness in offices and houses. Our inspiration was led by an exotic and aesthetic musical instrument which could help people to dream. the zero-gravity aspect of a suspended seating and the blink evocating the creole steelpan gives this furniture a friendly and unusual aspect.
Creativity
The shape of the seating is the negative shape of a steelpan instrument, the idea was that in the collective thought people feel more than understanding the blink. The void under the seat is studied to have this feeling of zero gravity and still be functional for use. This formal pouf shows two main part, the seat in PU foam and textile upholstery is fixed with leather straps to the lacquered or chromed steel frame. Proposed in three sizes, Drum as seen here can be assembled in a variety of ways and materials and could be completed by a wide range of lounge pouf and sofas
Design Challenges
The main challenge was to create a qualitative pouf which could pass a blink message such as fun and happiness, how to express positivity through a basic furniture, how people could dream and travel through this item.
Production Technology
This formal pouf shows two main part, the seat in PU foam and textile upholstery is fixed with leather straps to the lacquered or chromed steel frame.
