Véronique Baer’s ‘Bounce’ chairs are cone-shaped foam sculptures that transform into soft and comfortable chairs the moment someone sits on them.

“It adapts totally to any kind of body shape and bounces back up, after its user left.” says Baer. “The symmetrical shape of the chair invites to sit in it from every side and in every position.”

Two foam plates are glued together by their ends to build the body of each chair. They’re then covered by flexible furniture fabrics by Dutch brand Febrik giving “every chair its unique character”.

“A chair can be much more than the usual seat surface with back support and legs. The Bounce family consists of three members Anton, Christine and Olaf. Big Anton will surround its user with back and side support when someone sits in it, while Christine is a soft comfortable chair and little Olaf has the function of a stool.”

 

The Bounce family chairs were debuted at the 2014 DMY International Design Festival Berlin.
