The “Meanwhile” Lounge Chair is a response to the current “over-referencing” design that recycles the same concept of minimalism over and over. When designing the chair, 25H moved to primitivism 2.0, returning to nature, liveliness, and human essence. Just like a droplet assuming a shape as energetically advantageous as possible – unique each time, depending on its environment – even humans respond to the heaviness (or lightness?) of the moment. The metaphorical droplet of life, the one the studio wanted to embed into the product, is the female breast. Well, actually, breasts. Everyone reacts to the chair differently, reflecting their own view of the world. For the artist, the depiction of this female body element is not erotic, but rather a return to nature, the non-digital world, and the anti-parameterization of objects around us.
The breasts, shaped in the composition of castings, enhance the ergonomics of nature connected to a man made thing. The visually lightweight, stainless-steel structure consisting of bent tubes seamlessly connects with the iconic relief without a trace of any digital technologies.
