Batti’s Placentero Chair



Batti’s Placentero Chair is designed by an Argentinean designer named Batti. The outside sphere plastic surface is fiberglass and is finished with coat-gel which helps to erase scratches using polish paste. The seat’s leather comes in multiple colors. The bad part of

this chair is his weight [ 70 Pounds (32 Kg) ], just imagine moving this chair. The name of this chair come from a combination of two words linked to the pregnancy period, “placenta” and “pleasure”, is quite strange. From the picture this chair also look like a combination lounge chair, part egg chair, part rocking chair ..I hope he is quite comfortable. – Via – Thisisnext

  • [...] Placentero Chair został zaprojektowany przez argentyńskiego designera o imieniu Batti. Choć mebel ten wygląda jak połączenie kanapy i bujanego fotela to nazywa się go krzesłem. Sama nazwa “placentero” powstała z połączenia dwóch słów: “placenta”, czyli okres ciąży i “pleasure”, czyli przyjemność (nie mam pojęcia dlaczego). Skórzane obicie krzesła dostępne jest w kilku żywych kolorach. Niestety jego waga to aż 32 kg, więc raczej nie jest to bardzo przenośny mebel. Być może jest za to wygodny. Jak to się mówi, “każdy kij ma dwa końce”. [via Freshome] [...]

    I would LOVE to find something like this that would seat 2 and could hang from a pergola and be used as a porch swing.
    Any ideas?

    I would recommend looking into designs by Verner Panton. Since the Placentero Chair costs between $3000 and $5000, I would expect a 2 person one that hangs to be near $10,000, if you want to go in a similar modern style route.

    [...] Freshhome praises the Placentero’s space design: “The outside sphere plastic surface is fiberglass and is finished with coat-gel which helps to erase scratches using polish paste. The seat’s leather comes in multiple colors.” Of her experience test driving the Placentero at ICFF 2008 (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), 3rings’ blogger Michelle Bikic said, “Sinking into this innovative womb like chair feels great. It lets you stretch or curl up, while hugging and rocking you around. At times it felt tipsy, but that tipping point made me want to wiggle around in it even more after I was told that it would be impossible to tip over.” She went on to point out the lounge chair’s many possible uses: “While rocking away, I thought of different spaces that could benefit from the sophisticated fun this unique, over sized and futuristic looking chair offers – lounges, break rooms, media rooms, bedrooms, playrooms for kids and grown-ups, or best of all outside on a grassy patch.” [...]
