BACK TO BACK
2019 • FURNITURE • CONCEPT
“Back to Back ” is a furniture design which targets for two persons having comfortable conversations in public space. By multiplying the furniture, it can work as a space divider in an open space.
The design achieves a “tête-à-tête” meeting simply by connecting two chairs’ backrest into one with a smooth curve which gives a sense of bonding the users. Nevertheless, the high backrest also creates a semi-open space which provides both open view or private space of two. The curve creates a perfect 120º angle to avoid embarrassing eye contact but still available to talk "face to face" by changing their body gestures.
Besides, the finishing of the single piece of the wooden backrest are designed with special color dying treatment, looks like a big natural and artistic picture from far away. When passerby sees people having a meeting there, they will get a sense of not going nearby to interrupt.
