Functionality and Creative Elegance: Kinesis Chair and Ottoman

Kinesis Chair & Ottoman were designed by David Moser and have a highly original appearance. But what is truly striking about these two furniture elements, is their ability to induce the feeling of complete comfort. Here is a description from the producers: Kinetic energy is produced from a body in motion. It’s what happens when force is exerted on mass, as opposed to potential energy, when energy lies latent in mass.  Kinesis Chair & Ottoman are evidence of what is possible when both potential and kinetic energy inhabit the same space: a carved piece of lounge furniture that distills everything we’ve learned about wood, ergonomics, and sculpture into an extraordinary work of art. Combining a fine-art cast bronze sculpture base with a hand-shaped, curved silhouette, this chair is art—albeit of the truly interactive variety. Check out the video below for more information about the “making of” process.

    So, it’s a Lounge Chair without the style and taste? Looks like the designers of the Nissan 370Z raped Eames’ design :-(
