  • wow….

  • It looks more suited as an outdoor bench, not so much an indoor chair, as its form suggests.

  • Brilliant..

  • It is a nice! I do have concerns about it’s comfort. I also agree with Scott about too much f….. quasi-art design being produce.

  • nice, but I can’t see the “f…… clever” part

  • estetically great but…does it is really comfortable to sit on this seat? on a serie of tubes? I’d like to try…

  • Way to much form. No freshness.

  • Awesome !!

    Probably one of the best projects I have seen in a while ! I think it’s an example of what design is supposed to be .. fucking clever and fucking beautiful. Too much quasi-art rubbish is being made nowdays.

  • Beautiful!!

  • …I love it!!!
