The Eames DSR chair bases are admired for their structural and aesthetic simplicity by design enthusiasts amongst whom they are fondly known as the “Eiffel”
Thanks to a change in the law, replica versions of such “designer” furniture products were ordered sold by January 2017 or thereafter, destroyed. That’s how I came to acquire some of these bases , little did I know that their seating points were arranged on an incline. ROTI is my solution to this problem. My adopted method of construction whilst simplifying production and assembly also adds a level of aesthetic interest.
This concept is a hybrid in every sense, because it combines the classic with the modern whilst reimagining how furniture can measure up to our need for flexible spaces whilst not reminding us of office furniture.
Briggs in The Shawshank Redemption would have loved this.
What do you do when you have pulled too many bathtubs out of the rubble of a demolition site? Get creative and have fun!
I have long admired and collected office chair bases for their structural and aesthetic properties , they are literally the foundation of all office work worldwide, but of course they belong in the office, just like bath tubs belong in the bathroom. We wouldn’t sully our private spaces with them.
So I introduced these two offensive particles to each other and together they made a sculpture befitting any lounge. Once I have figured a softer, warmer landing for the body and an attractive patina for the eyes of the humans, that is.
I could tell you about this, but then I’d have to kill you. Be reassured that though that it was inspired by waste, specifically: the Tupperware packaging my store bought hummus comes in.
