No Seat Belt Required is a unique piece inspired by the childhood of its creator Jean-Baptiste, founder of Waiting For Ideas. A tribute to a childhood shaped by the family legacy of a century in the automotive industry. This handmade piece of furniture is a mix of harmonious curves and sharp angles much like the body of a modern automobile.

The designer, Jean-Baptiste, captures moments through Art and Design with his creative studio Waiting For Ideas. The inspiration comes from on hold car hood ready to be scrapped. With this project, Jean-Baptiste lets his intuition and emotion guide him to end up with a highly symbolic creation. “This armchair tells the story of my hours spent in the workshop learning how to paint, as well as memories of the family car shop founded by my great-grandfather in 1922” he explains. This piece is an exercise in transforming a technical material into something functional and artistic. The seat was initially prepared by cutting and bending the sheet metal before pouring the polyurethane foam. The whole seat is then carved and shaped entirely by hand to give it this unique form. To finish, the piece is primed and covered with a chrome paint. From start to finish; conception, building, and shooting, all take place in one place – his family’s workshop.

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.
