As kids, most of us dreamt of soaring high in the sky and making friends with the clouds! And giving us a fair chance to do so now is Okinawa-based designer Shota Urasaki with a one-of-its-kind ‘cloud chair’. Inspired by a moving cloud raining over a distant coastline, the chair aims at physically creating the experience of sitting on a fluffy cumulus cloud.
Created using tufts of polyester fiber, pierce-fitted into a polyurethane foam block, the chair offers a soft and relaxed seating experience. It is elevated using multiple metal rods and stainless-steel supports that look like long streams of rainfall along with a mirror at the bottom for added eclectic appeal. The seat comes with no backrest or armrests, although the fluffy center more than make up for any loss of comfort.
Commenting on it, Urasaki in a statement said, “I think there are many people who have imagined when they were children that they could sit on clouds. I realized that imagination. Poetic products enrich the emotions of users. In addition, this product makes the surrounding space visually enjoyable.”
Not a mere fragment of Urasaki’s imagination, the ‘Cloud Chair’ is an award-winning design. It was bestowed with Gold A’ Design Award, by A’Design Award & Competition and praised otherwise by many within the art fraternity. Ideal for home-offices or drawing rooms, this (the Cloud Chair) is what heaven for the bottoms probably feels like!
