Eco-Friendly Chair Design Inspired By A Music Video

Eco-Friendly Chair Design Inspired By A Music Video

Industrial designer Luca Nichetto drew inspiration for his Robo chair from the Bjork music video for 'All is Full of Love'.

Industrial designer Luca Nichetto presented his new ‘Robo’ chair recently at the 2010 Stockholm Furniture Fair. Created for the Swedish company Offecct, Luca drew inspiration for design from the Bjork music video for ‘All is Full of Love’. The Chris Cunningham directed video features robots that take on human characteristics in a graphic black and white environment.

But the Robo chair is more than an exercise in styling. Luca cleverly engineered the chair to ship as flat packed components. The chair can be broken down to fit in a 19″ x 19″ x 8″ box reducing the amount of packaging used compared to a conventional chair. The chair is constructed of sustainable plywood and acrylic felt made from recycled plastic bottles in an effort to make it more earth friendly.
