The Rising Chair was created by Dutch designer Robert Van Embricqs. Its sculptural shape rises from a simple wooden plank to form a unique and versatile chair design. This chair looks nothing like the other chairs designed throughout the years. The idea behind this chair’s conceptual construction was created starting with the flat surface used for sitting. The designer started cutting beam-like strands that would eventually shape the chair as an organic seating unit.
By cutting and raising the chair in the seating position, Robert Van Embricqs discovered how the final product would look like. The cuts are best visible in a resting position and the arches it creates when it rises define the entire design of the chair.
By colouring specific beams that make up the chair, the designer can define the Rising Chair’s shape and give it depth. Also, applying colours can underline the contrast between the sides and the top of the chair. Take a look to see how gorgeous the Rising Chair turned out.
