Dong Hanson, Founder & Design Director of GOODO Design (Member of the Design Committee of China Furniture Association) won the "New Product of the Year" award for the new "Donut" lounge chair designed by NOW & FUTURE, a brand of EXPOCASA.
"Donut" lounge chair design description:
The design of the lounge chair is inspired by a delicacy - doughnuts, which give a sweet taste. The minimalist geometric shape, the slanted cantilevered vision, presents a sculptural feeling in the space.
The lounge chair adopts an integrated foam mold, and the low-density, medium-rebound sponge ratio creates a very soft foam sitting feeling. Using 3D elastic fabric, the very high elasticity feature of the fabric makes the product reduce the seam line as much as possible when cutting three-dimensionally, so that the shape and details are more simple. Even large curved curves will not have fabric folds, while effectively ensuring its softness and comfort.
Special metal connections are used between the soft body part and the chassis, which effectively ensure the support strength. The inclined appearance and the structural design of single point contact give the product more ingenuity.
The design, R&D team repeatedly proofed in mechanical testing, foam foam density debugging, elastic fabric proofing, man-machine, form proportion, three-dimensional cutting and other links, grasped the key points of each link, and finally created furniture works suitable for different spaces.
The work breaks through the morphological characteristics of traditional seating and is shaped into furniture through the designer's whimsy. In the function, material, shape and production process and other elements are deeply and meticulously considered, in the aesthetics and mechanics to achieve a balance, to give people comfortable support, changeable colors so that the product has a stronger spatial adaptability, showing a good comprehensive effect.
