The Rising Chair by Robert van Embricqs
Design by: Robert van Embricqs - The Rising Chair
The Rising Chair emphasize the natural shape an object can made by transforming itself. Every piece of the chair has his own task to succeed in this transformation. It’s very easy to gather a huge collection of different chairs, throughout the years there has been a staggering abundance of them, in all shapes and sizes. But what fascinated me during my research was a simple question: to what degree is the object you're creating capable of dictating its own design? Is it even possible for an object to 'tell' for which form its best suited? And if so, what will the end result be?
Robert van Embricqs is fascinated by the aesthetically pleasing, yet intricate complexity of the natural form. Finding inspiration for his designs in bone structure, plant life and movement, one question remained ever present: ‘to what degree is the object you're creating capable of dictating its own design?’ This led him to develop a minimalistic design approach that can best be described as collaboration between designer and his material.
An important aspect of his design process is Van Embricqs’ conscious focus on marrying functionality with an aesthetically pleasing look. A conscious choice for functionality in design doesn’t necessarily mean one has to be burdened by conformity, let alone predictability.
Aside continuing his furniture line, Robert van Embricqs establishes flexible concepts on bigger scale in which movement creates interaction between the users and the architecture. He focused his attention on finding new ways to adapt the techniques he developed for outdoor and interior solutions.
