Blue Chair for a Blue Planet

I was inspired by the optimism and playfulness of some of the mid 20th century furniture design, and the aesthetic that has recently come to be referred to as “Retro Futurism”

But in order to feel optimistic about the future in the 21st century, it seems imperative to take on the “Cradle to Cradle” approach to Design.
The challenge then, lay in researching, choosing and sourcing materials that are healthy for the environment and either compostable or recyclable, and working with the possibilities and limitations of these materials in order to design pieces that combine a playful aesthetic, with comfort, and practicality while also designing for easy separation of materials at the end of the products life.
