Furniture designers creating high-end artifacts inspired by the elements of nature have always left me startled. Playing upon either its aesthetic appeal or functionality, a unique art piece in this genre never misses to appeal. Befittingly, a New Zealand-based ingenious sculptor, Andrew Roberts, of Red Roberts Design has come up with an unconventional lounger dubbed “The Seahorse.”
Roberts is highly influenced by abstract ideas blurring the line between possible outcomes. Establishing uniformity in the thought process, he has been influenced by the creations from Tony Cragg and Louise Bourgeois. Chasing to explore the sustainable outlook, Roberts’ lounger is an outcome of rotational molding, a distinction from the usual furniture creation techniques.
Made with an endeavor to create an unorthodox object that commands attention, the Seahorse lounger embraces few imperfections pompously. The Seahorse chair is designed after the shape of an actual seahorse and is made from polyethylene waste derived from plastic containers, plastic furniture, and toys.
According to the designer, ‘the Seahorse lounge chair is an exploration of the fusion between sculpture, emotion, and design.’ It is a designer’s way of reforming familiar objects into a new form maintaining physical and visual sensation.
An exquisite artistic expression adding another dimension to your space, the Seahorse lounger is produced in four pulsating colors. Imbued with a unique design, the lounge chair can comfortably seat an adult. Through the project, Roberts wanted to experiment with the outcome of biomorphic imitation of real-world objects, which is so beautifully portrayed with this unparalleled piece of furniture.
