With the world’s attention and probably yours glued to the television coverage of the Beijing Olympics, few could have failed to notice the spectacular Bird’s Nest Stadium where the opening ceremony took place. Well, here is seating that looks just like the stadium. The X_Lounger is a modern bean bag of a chair where ” a single ray has been traced along a periodic double curved surface, resulting in a random looking yet controlled construction pattern.” The X_Lounger is available either in satin aluminum or Malaysian rattan.
Timothy Schreiber is the architect and designer behind the X_Lounger who describes his style as “pop modernism”. He has traveled the world for his many projects. He was actually in Beijing and Shanghai in 2004 and 2005. Whilst he was in China, he helped designed the Aquatic Centre for the 2008 Olympics. – Via
