Wavy Ribbon Chair

You know all the ribbon campaigns? Blue ribbon (free speech), pink ribbon (breast cancer), pink ribbon (environmental justice), etc, etc, etc. You want to support them in a different way? This might be the chair for you. The chair consists of 2 ribbons and a wavy seat between them. The idea is that you either have fixed-coloured ribbons on either end (the cheap way) or have lights inside the chair so that you can change the colour of the ribbon whenever you like or is appropriate. (For example change the colour to pink when it’s October, the annual breast cancer month.)

Sketch created 18th September 2010.

If you’re curious how and where such a design is created, I drew this particular design in the train from Utrecht to Den Haag, while traveling to some computer-related volunteer event. This is how it looks:

I draw most of my designs just with an inscribed black extra-fine Parker pen. This time I bought a set of 20 coloured Stabilo fineliners just minutes before hopping on the train and used them to add some colour to the design to make the idea more visual.

    Super! I like your chairs very much. They do remind me of the one (and only) chair I invented once. By showing your designs you are stimulating me to continue. Thanks! Carolien

      Hi Carolien. đŸ™‚

      You’re welcome and if you ever decide that you want to publish your designs, let me know, maybe we could figure out something together. This blog is a work-in-progress, there is much left undecided, the only goal is that it has to be a platform for at least my own creativeness…
