Barrow Chair

Exhibition: Core77 Open 2012

 

Sparked by the common misuse of a wheel barrow as a lounge seat during break time on a work site, Nonlinear has selectively reduced the original form to highlight its most dynamic lines. The wooden slats create a tension between the feminine silhouette of the chairs seat and the hard geometry of the outer metal shell. A new structure and chair form have been found in a timeless and familiar object. Though still referencing it’s origins, the components are transformed into a clean chair with it’s own unique character. The wrap around shell makes the Barrow Chair a cozy lounge for both indoors and out.
