An asymmetric plastic chair inspired by insects

The design of this chair was derived from observations made on dragonflies, whose bodies are characterized by an imbalance in weight distribution between the front legs and their extended tail. From this came the idea of a cantilever chair with four legs joined on the front and a seating surface that seems to cheat the force of gravity like an overhang. The back legs are obtained from the same metal pipe that is also framing the front edge of the seat.
