Inspired by the structure of carbon molecules, Ukrainian design studio ODESD2 has created the Buckyball chair that can be a part of the scientific research of fullerenes. Designed by Svyatoslav Zbroy, the chair comprises six spheres, consisting of twelve pentagons each. Just like a multifunctional carbon molecule, the Buckyball chair can withstand heavy loads without losing its shape.
The most interesting feature of Buckyball is that the unusual structure can be arranged according to need. If you want to sit in the center, the spheres can be shifted to sides and it can even be turned upright to make seating space for up to five people. You can also snug spheres like pillows and feel cozy on carbon molecules bed, if you like.
Buckyball’s spheres have a chamber filled with air to maintain the shape. Each sphere is made of PVC and silicone, which adds strength to the design, while anti-explosion technology avoids damage in case of a collision with a sharp object.
Furthermore, covers of the sphere are made of microshenyl with a special coating that provides the fabric a protective barrier and allows ease of cleaning. Buckyball is designed to complement any type of interiors, it comes in a range of color options. Check out more details on the official website.
