Pulmao I guess that tubular chairs reminded me of one of my favorites architects, Mies Van der Rohe, and his simple yet elegant style. He was my inspiration. When sketching for my tubular chair design I ended up with very similar styles. They all had the characteristic of a serpentine-like metallic tube wrapping shapes around. For my final design I went simple but still innovative, I didn't wanted to make repeated rhythms of tubes so I developed a single metallic structure painted with a camel color. This structure lets the back support to bend enough to get a very comfortable position when seated. The other three element are all made out of black leader and some camel fillets. As we can all observe, the back support has a kind of lung shape. This idea reinforces my chair concept, a chair to seat, be comfortable, close your eyes, breathe and relax.
