Ron Arad FPE (Fantastic Plastic Elastic) Chair 1997

Wow!!This chair has fantastic shape! It manages something great when you  look at it, you accidently look the negative space, the space beneath the chair gets a formation which created by the two parallel aluminum tubes. All this operation makes the construction smooth, elastic and flexible.  The  body  is equally beautiful I love the curve and how it encompasses the human body. For sure it's a  shapely and elegant chair. It is a remarkable construction with simple around common materials : aluminum and injection-molded polypropylene plastic sheet.
79.4 x 43.2 x 55.9 cm

A swing for two people, for indoor and outdoor by Christian Flind tand Bodil Jerichau 2007

This swing immediately reminds me one construction that I made for my interior class. I can say that, the concept is the same with mine, so I would like to comment on.. A sitting for two. This swing is made of steel , polyurethane string with nylon in the middle, and of braided polyester string. You can placed it inside or outside. Two people can sit, have discussion and interact, being opposite and have communication.
Dimensions: 2,3 x 1,3 x 1,5 m
I like the shape and the idea of the concept, it looks comfortable and relaxing! If you see it from above it looks like eight (8) cool!
Below is my construction, which is a seat for two people. To work properly and not to fall down, you must sit with someone else, perhaps a friend and this connects you with the other and this creates a contact between the two. Is made of rope and it can be placed inside or outside and its always hanging.

Boiles Leather Armchair by Simon Hasan and Poltrona Frau

When I saw this chair I said immediately what is this thing?? A leather is on the top of a metal frame of an armchair! I didn't   like it, but I found it interesting and mysterious.. I like the fact that when you do not like something, usually makes you want to comment on. I have bad feelings when I see it , it is brutal and wild, it may be sound excessive, but is very violent and who would choose this armchair to put in his house? So uncomfortable and poor..this is my opinion. It looks like those two materials combined so badly that gives the image of two different pieces.
As I see Hasan uses leather very often and he  incorporates it on the frame as the stool above.

Random Pak Twin by Marc Newson 2006

This sofa for sure is not so comfortable!  Is something  that came from software and its made of nickel and it has contemporary style.. I can imagine how cold is the surface, its better if you put a  pillow before you sit. Is something that you'll put it in showrooms.. I would not choose it for my place, but I really like the shapes because they can create reflection if you placed it for example under the sun or next to a floor lamp. Is so transparent and so naked it is futuristic and  it seem just like an illusion,if you do want to see it you'll see it ..Nothing can hide behind that sofa. It has very simple shape, but if you look closer is not so simple, look at those shapes and what they can create under the light, I find it very educational and do not forget who is the creator Marc Newson!!

Yin Yang Chaise Lounge by Nicholas Thomkins

Is called Yin Yang and it looks exactly like the symbol of yin yang: "This Symbol represents the ancient Chinese understanding of how things work. The outer circle represents "everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called "yin" (black) and "yang" (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other."( http://fly.cc.fer.hr/~shlede/ying/yang.html).
It is a mixture of ancient culture and modern furniture  design.. I have seen this chair on a shop and I try it.. It is very comfortable! It is a very beautiful construction made very carefully so when you sit you relax .. I wish I had it at my house! Imagine to sit on a beach and enjoy the sea .. like the picture above .. in  word of speach abssolutelly"magic"!  While you sitting you can have a discussion with your  friend sitting next to you, you can read a nice book, or can simply relax..  Both seats come together very carefully and create a  full circle, above there  are pillows, which offers  you rest..It has an advantage you can placed it everywhere..in a home, in a garden, in a countryside even on a beach!!
