The Single Cord Lounge chair is definitely a fun piece that I would buy to place in my apartment. The piece utilizes the materialistic properties of rope, such as its tension and yield strength, to create a reliable and interactive seating arrangement. The frame is made out of a single board of ash. Interestingly, the rope is only one 100 ft. cord as stated by its designer, Josh Shiau, who is currently and Industrial Design student at RISD.
On a different note, this piece reminds me of another chair that utilizes a cord and its material properties as its seating arrangement. It is the Carnaval Chair and was designed by Guido Lanari. Both chairs are warm and welcoming but I cannot see them going into the same environments. Shiau’s chair can be placed in a home, apartment, or any sort of residential area whereas I can see Guido’s design being placed in a office and more corporate setting.
Tell us where you think these two chairs would be most ideal and if they can be placed in the same setting!
