Inspiration can come from anywhere. It applies in furniture, and Christian Sjöström has the perfect example for it. When the designer created the Camou, it is the horseback riding that becomes the designer’s inspiration. Uncomfortable, that would be the first impression when looking at Camou for the first time. However, we will find that impression was wrong because this chair has been designed in a certain way to allow the users to change position freely and comfortably, though it will make the users to follow its rocking movement a lot. Camou has been also equipped with wide backrest to support the user’s posture.
The Camou gives the users free choice to decide the sitting position. This can only be generated from deep thought of the design. Combining the material, the function and ergonomics to get as perfect design as possible without giving away the aesthetical aspect of the object, the designer successfully created a chair with great characteristic. Completed with the steel tube and the transparent 3D-textile to wrap the frame, this chair is truly a treat for our eyes. With all the features as well as its design, this horseback riding chair can be perfect additional piece for those who want to create modern themed decoration.
An everyday use chair focusing on movement and variation for the body. Inspired by the posture in horseback riding and textile constructions from architecture a chair was created focusing on flexibility for the user.
The ability to move creates a variety of sitting positions and the user is in charge of the body. The form is a result of function, material and ergonomics; which has been a big part of the design process.
The result has an organic shape which creates new alternative ways of how to sit in the everyday life.
The steel tube and the transparent 3D-textile creates interesting visual effects, the chair melts into the environment at the same time looking as a sculptural object
