The Unbeweaveable wingback chair by Aprro Design

This is a design of unique and extravagant chair by Alexander Purcell for Aprro Design a US based design studio. The set is completed with a footstool. The chair is named 'The Unbeweaveable' and is a wingback chair. One of the features is that the chair is oversized, so two people can sit in it comfortably. The Unbeweaveable chair and footstool can be used in indoor and outdoor environments. The designers were inspired by the origin of places like California and other similar climates. The form of the chair is inspired by the Victorian wingback contemporized by the stainless frame that is bented to the form of the chair. Hand knitted polypropylene rope reminiscent of a hammock is woven to the frame creating a suspended seat.

The chair dimensions are 4” x 34” x 50” inch so really large and not a problem for two people to seat.The price for the Unbeweaveable chair and footstool is yet to be announced. The great thing from this design studio is they made this set completely by hand, so you can customize almost everything. You can select a custom color. The set can be shipped to Europe.

The Moebius House in Sydney Australia

This is a design of a house that develops the idea of The Moebius House. The design is form Australian architects Tony Owen Partners. They created a really good house following the idea of the moebius spline. The house is situated at Australian city Sydney near the harbor and has the view of famous landmarks as Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The Moebius house is constructed from a steel frame clad in metal panels.

The architects tried to combine many features in the design of the building. They successes to accomplish a large space inside the house, views on a tight sight and explore the maximization of light. They used the so called sensitive form of design 'micro design'. The micro design is modeling software that can be used to respond to really small changes to design inputs by the designer. They were concentrating on getting great view in front of the building maximum ventilation and minimum impact on the nature and nearby neighbors. Also one of the great architectural solutions is that they make the best possible tunnels for sunlight and views for the persons in the building.

The designers said that the because of the forms and idea behind the building they had to build it in completely new way. The whole project was designed in the 3 dimensions so the construction could be possible. The building of the house ended like construction of a car. The Moebius House is constructed around a chassis just like the cars are, and not like a normal building starting from the floor and walls.
