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.

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!!
SIZE: h: 34.6 x w: 55.1 x d: 24.6 in / h: 87.9 x w: 140 x d: 62.5 cms
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!!
there is a video on this site take a look: http://andypong.blogspot.com/2008/11/red-dot-best-of-best.html

This Dutch man, Joris Laarman he is one of my favorite designers. As he believes it is very difficult thing to combine logic with sensitivity, but the point and the very special thing on him is that he is doing this vey well! This chair definitely needs a lot of imagination. He developed this design on a computer program that the car manufacturers using. The chair was prepared in 2006 and its made of aluminum. Is like the skeleton hooked on the seat and the back. Very modern concept that gives a different feeling to the design of furniture. In his creations there is a point, not so distinct, where the technology being promoted with the classic beauty..

I would like to show this amazing piece of furniture.. A hanging lounge sofa, designed by Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety..
I had the pleasure to hear about this furniture when I went before a few days to a furniture store, and the owner showed me this hanging lounge chair. I have to say that I got very impressed because it is so unique design..
It is ideal for relaxation, meditation and discussion. Is constructed in such way so that the person who sits can be seen outside, but the outsiders cannot see inside.
It can be placed anywhere, in a garden in a living room even in the countryside!!
