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.
