bashko trybek: anti stress chair


‘anti stress chair’ by bashko trybek is composed of hundreds of rearrangeable stress balls

‘anti stress chair’, the work of polish designer bashko trybek and in production by paris-based outdoorz gallery,
is a customizable wireframe furniture piece that utilizes hundreds stress balls to create its cushioning.

produced in a large (240 ball) ‘low chair’ and a small (128 ball) model, the chair itself consists of a steel wire grid
powder-coated in a range of colours. users place stress balls in each of the spaces of the wireframe,
arranging them as desired into stripes, motifs, or patterns. the colours of stress balls were selected
as magenta, cyan, yellow, black, and white to match the printing raster, turning the entire piece
into a playful and interactive interpretation of printing pixels.

‘anti stress low chair’ is on exhibition at hors piste for the ‘inspirations‘ exhibition
during the fall edition of maison&objet 2011 in paris from september 9th through 13th.
