Description

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.

About the designer


Studio 25H

The origins of 25H design studio date back to 2014, when the two designers, soulmates Tomáš Dymeš and Ondřej Peľák, met at the Industrial Design studies of the CTU in Prague. They have worked together on many projects since then and, after school, took it a bit more seriously. The studio\'s name reflects their workoholistic temperaments, they do work 25 hours a day. Their “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.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
