WaveFreedom-003

Following the destructive impact Hurricane Sandy made in NYC, The Battery Park Conservancy made an appeal to all the design and architecture community to submit concepts for a chair suitable for the Battery Park.

Wave is inspired by the sense of freedom one experiences the Battery Park, in the context of the rivers merging and flowing out to sea, and guarded by the Freedom Tower and Lady Liberty - sights of relief, symbols that one has reached freedom. Made of bio-resin and fabric, or pressed aluminum - Wave breaks away from convention and drapes the idea of a chair in a thin skin.
