Ernesto Pastore designed the Seashell chair inspired by Bivalve seashells. The shape in which mollusks adapted their exoskeletons for protection is a simple yet elegant solution that results in a beautiful form, the product of millions of years of evolution. According to its designer, you can see this inspiration through the dual curvatures and contours that make up the shape of the chair.
The idea started with a sketch and was further developed with computational design tools and algorithms. Its final shape is composed of a series of individual and unique outlines. Each of these shapes or outlines is made from steel rods that are carefully molded and welded together in a hand-made process by master craftsmen.
The Seashell chair is available in a powder-coated black, white, or silver finish. There is also a special edition version, made with stainless steel rods in a satin finish for outdoor settings. Additionally, an optional leather seat is available for extra comfort.
Overall, this chair is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and comfortable. It is a testament to the beauty and ingenuity of nature and how it can inspire the creation of objects. Whether you’re looking to add a statement piece to your home or office, this chair is a fantastic choice.
