For the XII International Competition of Exterior Furniture Design 2018, the organizer's premise, GANDIABLASCO, consisted in the design of an exterior piece (a piece of furniture, a complement, a lamp, etc.) that improves the experience of enjoying the outdoors.
The composition is based on a perimeter frame of extruded aluminum tube with channeled edges, providing rigidness but algo a feeling of lightness and tectonicity, which is juxtaposed with the image of hanging dough provided by the drawer-tray in the union between the backrest and the footboard.
Tumbona as_01 defies gravity, and thus refers to the tension generated between the light and tectonic horizontal plane of the perimeter frame, and the heavy hanging mass of the drawer-tray.
The upper part is covered by a thermocalated aluminum sheet suitable to receive a cushion and or a foam mat covered in water-repellent fabric.
“Tumbona as_01 provides a compartment, maximizes the time of relaxation and frees the space of other objects. Comfort, functionality and a great experience of use to enjoy the outdoors.”
