In a world where we are surrounded by objects that are mass produced and easily accessible, we are losing our connections with things that we use.
Disconnect. is a chair that helps us to escape mediocrities and bring in connection by showing the obvious disconnection. While sitting in the what feels like a floating chair, we are re-examining our human connection with industrialized objects, with a little magic and joy.
In todays' world, our life is filled with mass produced objects that are easily accessible to us. In this material driven world, we are getting more and more things that we don't care about. The idea of Disconnect. came from the realization of this pattern, it is a statement that strives to bring attention to this issue, letting us be more intentional when buying and using things.
Disconnect. brings the disconnection to the forefront with its unique structural appearance, it encourages people to rethink their relationship with things that they use every day, being intentional and engaged before taking a seat, while adding a little spark of magic to a day.
Disconnect. is the child of today's advance technology, presented in a new perspective. It celebrates the material integrity of stainless steel and uses it to its advantage. Disconnect. is unlike any other chair, at first glance, the seat appears to be floating in the air, and the magic reveals in the back, where another tube structure connects to the back legs and loops to support the seat. In achieving the disconnection effect, the special structure is designed, engineered, and tested to support human weight while hiding it when viewed.
The arm and legs are made with stainless tube, representing industrialization, technology, and rigidity. The seat is sculpted to be a soft form that touches users body, representing a soft and human side. All while the legs cleverly supports the disconnected chair weight, and the seat drapes over the metal structure to hide the inner frame.
