Sleep Sailing

Visiting the Design Museum Denmark for the launch of that great Nordic style magazine Oak – The Nordic Journal we came across this ultimate build yourself nest.

Behind this innovative sculptural piece of furniture we find Danish designer Jacob Jorgensen has designed this elegant curved chair called Barca which is shaped like a boat.

The design is a result of combining identical repeated elements to create forms that appear to be free and organic. In Jacob’s own words, “Being in a simple and easy productive way to create what seem like complex free forms – free form in the sense that the shape achieves an organic quality, although it is composed of identical geometric elements. I’m not interested in geometry, but form a more natural sense. Geometry has my interest as a method in a production to create and clear otherwise complex free forms. It is the path to the goal, but in itself it emerges.”

Sounds good, looks great, but still not sure how I get in and out of it…..
